Freespire aspires, but fails to inspire

Strange review title. :)

But, hey, writers are often "creative," aren't they.

Freespire evoked the "just works" cliche for me on this Acer Aspire 5610Z
by simply being able to, at boot, find and connect my wifi. Woo-hoo! I had
not been able to get PCLinuxOS, Vectorlinux or (of course) SUSE to do
that.

Everything else works great, too. So, it is now my default OS on this new
machine.. and folks, for me that is a great big leap after fooling around
with so many distros over the years on my other machine, an old pc.
