Linspire Starting today, Linspire does not only offer a free OS, but also its CNR Basic service. " Linspire, Inc., developer of the commercial desktop Linux operating system of the same name and Freespire, the free community desktop Linux operating system, announced the immediate change in pricing for its popular CNR Service from an annual subscription fee based offering to a completely free service." CEO Carmony said: "We're thrilled to now be in a position to offer this excellent service to desktop Linux users absolutely free. CNR really makes using desktop Linux easy, and we want everyone to have access to this quality service."

Might want to check how old some of that software is, wouldn't want you to have stale stuff. ;) Also, you may want to check the security advisories and you will notice that what other distros consider to be security flaws and provide updates for them, *spire on the other hand rates security flaws differently and does not consider a lot of security flaws to be applicable.

Wont have to worry about things becoming borked? No *spire mixes packages from all over and has a convoluted warehouse which makes everything fragile and often means things are borked more often not less than Debian stable.
