    Yes, but rewording the question doesn't make any more sense... what is he asking to begin with?

    I don't know anything about Linspire, do they not offically call themselves a Linux Distribution? Does Linux even have a trademark?

    OH! The Linux "trademark"! Ok. Well yes, Linspire does officially call themselves a Linux distribution, and rightfully so. They follow the GPL and use the Linux kernel for their OS.

    Linux is the trademark of Linus Torvalds, registered in the US and several other countries. There is more information on the Linux trademark here. I still don't know if I've answered the original poster's question, however...

    my question is why linspire called linspire and not " Linspire Linux"?
    it is ok???

    anyway:
    linspire use Linux trademark(they say,,..)) ... my fault .... i think gonna try that distro... click n run technology (whoa) ... is there any distro use that technology.. which make typing in console less...

    distrowatch reviews:
    Linspire is a full-featured operating system (based on Debian GNU/Linux) like Microsoft Windows XP or Apple Mac OSX. Linspire offers you the power, stability and cost-savings of Linux with the ease of a Windows environment. In addition, Linspire features exclusive Click-N-Run (CNR) technology that makes installing software on Linspire fast and easy -- simply find the software you want in the Click-N-Run Warehouse, then click and run it!


    the downside is its not free...

    sorry for my bad english....

    OK, now that we have that clarified:
    Not all distributions use "Linux" in their name, for example, "Fedora Core"
    Linspire never really apealed to me, though, as I think it seems too watered down, though it might be a good intro to Linux for die-hard windows users
