What the interest ?

It seems to be made from software not really on the same time line :

- linux 2.6.15 -> october 2005
- KDE 3.3.2 -> december 2004
- Firefox 1.5.0.4 (renamed Web Browser) -> april / may 2006.

Very strange mixing...

Yes, that is a sore point and one that will hopefully be fixed soon. I am thinking about creating a package or possibly a repo for some ported packages so anyone who wants them can update, hopefully without breakage.

I have updated my OSS edition of freespire to 3.5.0 and that is about as new as I can get without ripping out important parts. As stated, it isn't perfect or anywhere near it but it is a good step down the proper path IMO.
