I can understand the reasoning behind this (marketing) but this just sounds like shareware, something i thought i wouldn't be seeing in a Linux distro.

It's not Shareware, it's a commercial Linux distribution, just like RedHat and others.

But is it any better than the free ones? Freespire looks more interesting than this and it's not even that great compared to many other distros.
