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."

RE[2]: *sigh!*

MacOS X does INDEED get faster with each point release. I wouldn't have said it, if it did not... and if there weren't independant verification it did.

Leopard isn't out yet, so to say that it won't run on G3 Systems is besides the point. Vista won't run on Pentium, Pentium 2 systems...

But, 10.4 (which is the CURRENT OS) DOES run on a G3. I think that's commendable since the G3 line was discontinued some years ago.

Linspire 5.0 was fine. It just needed the newest Kernel, updated drivers, and more tweaks/upgrades.

The move to Ubuntu as a core, was a step backwards IMHO. MEPIS realized it, and the next release WON'T be Ubuntu based.
