Linspire Xandros has announced the end of Linspire. The company says that it had too many for-pay distributions running around in the company portfolio, so one was bound to be cut. Linspire didn't make it. "Xandros purchased Linspire, the company, earlier this summer. This week, the company announced that it was going to revamp community distribution Freespire, basing its next version on Debian instead of Ubuntu, and using it as a precursor for Xandros Desktop Professional, in much the same way Red Hat uses Fedora and SUSE uses openSUSE. But the company didn't need multiple for-pay desktop distributions, so Linspire is getting the boot."

I have the latest Mandriva here (I think). I haven't tried it yet.

I just installed Linux Mint on an old Celeron 2.9 box, and figured out how to install DreamLinux on a P4 2.4 box. In fact, I'm posting this on the DL box now.

I like DL better than LM. It feels more like MacOS X, which I use on my old Pismo Powerbook and an Intel Mac Mini.

I'm getting sick of Windows and hoping that ReactOS goes beta in my lifetime, and Haiku gets to a 1.0 release soon.
