Linspire Releases Freespire 1.0 Desktop Linux Operating System
Michael Hoffman (Blog) - August 15, 2006 7:38 PM
Linspire released Freespire 1.0 several days before LinuxWorld, but was at the event to promote Freespire

Linspire is attending LinuxWorld to promote its newly released Freespire 1.0 Desktop Linux operating system. Freespire 1.0 is a Debian-based desktop Linux OS that offers the open source software along with proprietary drivers that are legally-licensed. Although Linux veterans sometimes are weary of using Linspire, the company claims that Freespire is "designed to be powerful enough for sophisticated Linux users and developers." Around 100 community and "industry VIPs" worked on Freespire over the past two years. Information taken from the official Freespire web site:

As a free, community-driven distribution, Freespire should appeal to both users and developers who want to see an easier-to-use desktop Linux that, out-of-the-box, supports more hardware, software and media formats. However, for those who prefer to use only open source solutions and don't need legal support for MP3s, DVDs, Windows Media, QuickTime, Java, Flash, and so on, the OSS Edition of Freespire that is 100% open source provides an excellent alternative as well.
