Review: Freespire 5.0 - Linspire Freed
Anonymous Reader writes "Hold on a sec... did you say Free-spire? It's true. It seems that a free Linspire clone has hit the ftp mirrors. DistroWatch reports 'Freespire is a new Linux distribution, a free edition of Linspire with all proprietary components and trademarks removed. The distribution comes with a free repository of over 1,500 packages available via apt-get and Synaptic. This initial release functions as a live CD only and serves as a proof of concept. It certainly looks like an interesting idea: combining the benefits of Linspire's excellent usability and hardware auto-configuration with a free repository of Debian packages.'"
