Lindows Operating System

What ever happened to Lindows??? Can people still purchase that OS? Is it a good alternative OS, or is it a bad idea?

Following a lawsuit from a Redmond empire (not Starbucks) over the alleged similarity of the name of the distribution potentially causing confusion among those too careless to read the label, the distribution has rebranded itself as "Linspire".

Its licensing package makes it more expensive than M$, despite a cheaper initial investment and is a Bad Idea for a multitude of other reasons.
