Linspire In a short story with a happy ending, the developer of a free version of Linspire called Freespire has agreed to change the name of his project, and Linspire is offering free copies of Linspire Linux for a few days. Freespire, which first popped up on Distrowatch last week, described itself as a free variant of Linspire Linux, with proprietary components and trademarks removed.

To keep their good name in the community should just offer free developer releases, alphas, betas, etc. So we can try it out and let them know if their system has any noticable bugs.

We don't NEED a free version, we've got plenty of other distros to choose from. But offering us a free version to check out from time to time will help us help them spread their software and their name. Maybe sys admins like me would be more willing to recommend them, like we do RedHat and possibly SuSE or Mandrake, Debian, Gentoo, etc.

Every Linux admin should have a knoppix or Mepis CD in their backpack. Maybe Linspire could join the collection, if they were willing..
