You can download a completely open source version, or a version that includes various proprietary codecs and drivers for an improved out-the-box experience. Screenshots.

Linspire/Freespire are clearly not intended for people who are serious enough about Linux/OSS to be reading a website like this, so obviously most people here (myself included) won't see the need for it.
Why don't people see that?

Agreed. Since the very first version of Lindows, which was a clear fun of "Linux" + "Windows", this combination and its children distros have disgusted me. I can't explain why.
