Linspire Starting today, Linspire does not only offer a free OS, but also its CNR Basic service. " Linspire, Inc., developer of the commercial desktop Linux operating system of the same name and Freespire, the free community desktop Linux operating system, announced the immediate change in pricing for its popular CNR Service from an annual subscription fee based offering to a completely free service." CEO Carmony said: "We're thrilled to now be in a position to offer this excellent service to desktop Linux users absolutely free. CNR really makes using desktop Linux easy, and we want everyone to have access to this quality service."

Hello everyone, I would like to try out Freespire but would only be able to do so by running it as a live cd.

Specs:
Ram: 512MB
Video: 256MB Nvidia
Processor: 1.00ghz AMD

X will not start with the latest cd. I was able to get one of the test versions running by deleting the "pci" line in the xorg.conf file but that won't work with the newest one. The previous test release that worked was extremely slow, not sure what was going on. This same computer could run Linspire 5 just fine though.
