The world is talking about GNU/Linux and Free/Open Source Software
First look: Freespire
Freespire is the free offshoot of the proprietary Linspire Linux distribution, formerly an outside effort, but now produced by the company itself. The first beta release is available through the Freespire Web site, both as a CD-sized burnable ISO image and as a VMware Virtual Appliance. Despite its youth and inexperience, it already exhibits considerable polish.
Note that Linspire is offering a means to use non-free multi-media codecs, and hasn't really done much to provide or support free codecs that everyone can use.
