Linspire is gone

That’s right earlier this year Xandros bought out Linspire (source: http://www.linux.com/feature/144307)

Interestingly Xandros plans to completely revamp Freespire with a Debian code base. This is exciting news indeed I’ve been wondering if they were ever going to go beyond Freespire 2 back when I used Freespire I was highly impressed (although it felt too commercial and I much preferred synaptic to CnR). There have been many cries for a Debian based Freespire I’m not entirely sure why although I have heard that Debian based distro’s are faster, more responsive and easier to upgrade than their Ubuntu counterparts.
