Well, whilst i haven't checked and tested each and everyone program and capability of LINSPIRE,
I was very impressed with what I did see and use.
Overall, it seems to me that the distro is very easy to operate. Everything is there at your fingertips. Many programs, virtually everyone that's worth its salt is incorporated. All the useful ones are there such as calendar, Office, screenshot and even a two panel file manager. It found my printer by itself - I didn't have to do a thing :)) Furthermore there is synaptic program manager, from which you can install any program that in your opinion may be missing.
If you're looking for a complete sytem for everyday use and more - look no further !!

I downloaded its iso and unfortunately it won't boot on a 64 bit computer.

There are way better Linux payed releases and in the open-source sector. Sorry I'm not impressed.

Well you could have knocked me down with a feather when I saw the news that my old Linux buddy Linspire had been raised from the dead or at least that place where old operating systems go to die!!!
Linspire was the beginning of my romance with Linux, it buffered me a little further way from the terminal command windows but still allowed me to have a safe secure computer environment to surf the web and enjoy my internet safely.
No having to run defraggers or antivirus software, no having to seasonally reinstall a slow lumbering operating system blotted with updates every Tuesday!
The great things is no longer is Linspire running as root, it is built on a very stable version of Ubuntu and its an environment where I can feel happier, my distro-surfing days are through with Linspire on my SSD in my laptop. You can dredge up the past but what does it have to do with the current owners NOTHING!
Thanks guys. I’ve supported their effort and purchased a copy, after running Freespire for a short while. And I happy that I can use Chrome to surf and safely use my laptop for all of my daily activities and not have to use Windows.
It's a true shame that Lindows AKA Linspire is no more to me it was the most beautiful operating system that I have ever used.
It's a damn shame that greedy Microsoft suited Linspire.
I will also always remember Richard the CEO of Linspire and what a great man that he was for trying to give us people of the earth an alternative operating system other than Windows.
I sure wished that it could have still been in business but unfortunately it is no more.
The website URL is now owned by someone else in another country either Chinese or Japanese or Korean not sure what language it is but all that I can say is that I truly appreciated at least was given a chance to have gotten to try there OS and there really cool click N' run store that was setup exactly like Google play store but much more better hands down.
I just wanted to throw out here my thoughts and as far as Linspire R.I.P.
WE ALL STILL LOVED YOU AS WELL AS I DID AND WILL FOREVER WILL BE MISSED!..
