Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Hold on a sec... did you say Free-spire? It's true. It seems
that a free Linspire clone has hit the ftp mirrors. DistroWatch
reports 'Freespire is a new Linux distribution, a free edition of
Linspire with all proprietary components and trademarks removed.

packages available via apt-get and Synaptic. This initial release
functions as a live CD only and serves as a proof of concept. It
certainly looks like an interesting idea: combining the benefits of
Linspire's excellent usability and hardware auto-configuration with
a free repository of Debian packages.'
"The Freespire web site isn't much to see at this point, but you
can at least grab an ISO of this interesting distro..."
