Linspire "Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings."

freespire is better than ubuntu

It seems to me that most people have forgotten the substance - the distro itself. I tried live cd and I must admit that in spite of what one may say about dirty deals with MS the distro shines. And I just wish that people in Ubuntu take a look and learn what a cool distro one would make from the same stuff. I have never really got all the positive buzz about Ubuntu. In my view it's a pretty average distro which I'll never run. I use Debian and do not need any ubuntus.
In fact after all those nasty and unjustified comments (as dor article - I do not how the text justifies the harsh title; in the same vein one would write an article about whatevr distro as none of them is perfect) I have growing desire to install freespire.
