Freespire aspires, but fails to inspire

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.121.182.223] on August 22, 2007 01:48 AM
The people at Linspire have created a Linspire facade for Freespire,
but inside it's a marshmallow:
last night I installed adept, the Kubuntu package manager,
from Freespire's repositories
and let adept_updater upgrade the kernel
resulting in an unbootable Linux.
Today I installed Kubuntu 704
plus ubuntu-desktop on the partition.
These I can work with.
