Freespire aspires, but fails to inspire

The main point of Freespire is that things that Windows users expect to work (Java, Flash, Quicktime, RealPlayer, mp3 etc...) just work.
I do not think the other distro's mentioned af the end of this article handle this for the newbie. Freespire does.
These are the things that frustrate Windows users trying to move to Linux...
