One thing desktop Linux users, and prospective users, complain about most is the lack of hardware drivers and software. Often theres an answer to a users particular problem, but the driver isnt included in the users distribution, or the software is hard to find and harder to install.
Desktop Linux distributor Linspire says it has the answer: standardize software installation across Linux distributions by expanding its popular CNR (“Click N Run”) digital download and software management service to support several popular desktop Linux distributions.
CNR has long been used in Linspires own distributions, the commercial Linspire and the community-based Freespire. Finding, installing and updating software has been confusing for many desktop Linux users, since each distribution requires its own installation process. The CNR Service makes installing any application, however, into a one-mouse-click operation.
