It's depend requirement, I believe it help people to migrate from windows to linux. Even it is commercial products. The big problem is this kind of vendor not supply HR/ERP/POS system as well (Which is big constrain for people migrate from Windows to Linux).

not necessary, they can use whatever linux oses. As long as they know, or their supplier know it. They can enjoy more secure OS with little bit of money.

What I meant was that if they can't learn how to use ubuntu or PCLinuxOS or something like that, then they really "smart" enough to use Linux. Linspire(or Freespire for that matter) is meant for people who think linux is a cheap copy of Windows in my opinion
