I did. I used 4.5 for a few months after Linspire was doing a promo here on OSNews a few years ago and I tried 5.0 that came on a Wally World POS a friend had purchased for his kid. I also tried Freespire 1.0 when it came out on a test machine just out of interest. However, I currently don't have any Linspire/Freespire products installed.
