Fantastic!

Personally, i think freespire 2.0 is great!

I didn't need to do any command line editing. All worked out of the box, sound, video, hardware detection, ect... I also think the installer is very easy to use, especially if you want it to auto-partition the whole hard drive.

It's fantastic for new windows as well, very stylish and smooth looking - easy to navigate the menus. The included codecs also make it easy for new linux users.

The only thing i didn't like is the inclusion of CNR, because its not even usable yet. They should have either waited to release 2.0 after CNR is fully functional or included synaptic.

But thats just my opinion, try it for yourself :)
