Freespire

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on July 30, 2006 02:05 AM
Well, I will have to wait to find out how good Freespire actually is. I attempted to download it and test it. The problem was I was only getting a download rate of about 19kB/s. It would have taken forever. I thought that BitTorrent was supposed to be something useful; however, having a 20mbit ADSL2 line means that I should have been able to download this puppy in about 15 minutes. Guess I'll have to wait for the mirror sites. The only problem is that I am pretty satisfied with Ubuntu....
