Linspire? no freespire



Distroreviews has an article up reviewing the release of a freespire livecd. Did I say freespire? Yes, it’s a free clone of linspire. They’ve basically taken out all linspire proprietary addons and branding. (Although according to the review there are a few traces.)



Linspire is considered a fairly easy to use distribution among other things the click-n-run software repository is highly touted. (There are negatives – no discouragement from running as administrator). I wonder as freespire continues if the installer will be as easy to use as linspires?
