I use Linspire because it's easy to support and lets me concentrate on doing a job rather than futzing with the OS.

Granted, there is literally a price to pay for the ability to keep the OS updated and use the "1 click install", but when you have a 78 year old father who uses the OS, it's easier to tell him to click on the green icon in the tray and pick out the new program than it is to have him drop into terminal and sudo apt-get .

Since the license terms are liberal, I can also use the update feature for all my personal machines.

When I travel, I use the DVD edition of Knoppix. Granted, Ubuntu is the current favorite among most but in a fragmented market, I like to stick with what I know and not change distros to further divide the marketplace.

Just a description, not an endorsement.
