|I don't think I've ever really been a big fan of Lindows. The non-disclosure agreements, rebranding of software, concentration on running proprietary Windows applications... It all reeks of one of those get-rich-quick pyramid schemes. michaelr is right, they have done a great deal for the community - he enumerates these points in his interview - but that should not be viewed as a bribe to the community to allow him to violate the GPL. The GPL does not have any provisions about release-type, etc, only about distribution.
Frankly, I think this particular distribution is more of a hindrance than a help - money and code aside, the major contribution they have given is the "Linux just wants to be Windows!" impression they've helped cement in the press. Thanks, but no thanks.
Kids, kids, we can all try the exciting new toothpaste from Mars!
