Freespire aspires, but fails to inspire

And well it should leave the blogger with mixed feelings. KC and the Sunshine Band buggered this distro so badly they couldn't handle Debian based, so shifted to Ubuntu core to allow somebody ELSE to do the heavy lifting for them. Then, a pact was signed which said "Sure, we don't make nearly any of what we distribute, but we agree for those who DO make it that it violates MS patents, even though we haven't seen any." Novell did it, Xandros did it, and Lindows did it. If you truly want a GNU/Linux with training wheels, go for Ubuntu or PCLOS or Mandriva.
