"The sincerest complement a Linux distribution can get is when the onetime CEO of a rival Linux company switches to that distribution. That's exactly what happened when Kevin Carmony, former CEO of Linux desktop distributor Linspire, publicly announced that he's switched to Ubuntu.

"Carmony, who left Linspire in late July, announced his switch to Ubuntu in the Ubuntu Forums on Oct. 17. In his note, Carmony wrote: 'Now that I'm no longer the CEO of Linspire, or under any obligation to use that particular distribution, I thought I should take some time and look around at all the distributions and decide which one was right for me and my PC. In addition to already being quite familiar with Linspire and Freespire, I also looked at Novell/SUSE, Red Hat/Fedora, PC Linux, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu.'
