Linspire "Freespire, the free as in beer version of the Linspire Linux distribution, this month released Freespire 2.0, the first version of the operating system based on the popular Ubuntu distribution, and the first to contain proprietary codecs and drivers. Despite its attractive appearance, it left me with mixed feelings."

No sense crying over spilt milk but I think Linspire/Freespire is officially dead.What they should have done from the beginning was to make it free and involve the community from the get go, they failed to do.So in my mind that among other business deals,left a sour taste in the community's mouths not even to use it much less recommend it to other people.
