    FREESPIRE 2.0 (Release Date 08/08/2007)
    The Freedom of Choice

    Freespire is a community-involved, Linux-based operating system that combines the best that free, open source software has to offer (community involved, freely distributed, open source code, etc.), but also provides users the choice of including proprietary codecs, drivers and applications as they see fit. With Freespire, the choice is yours as to what software is installed on your computer, with no limitations or restrictions placed on that choice. How you choose to maximize the performance of your computer is entirely up to you.


    Freespire 2.0 begins with Ubuntu (Version 7.04) as its baseline and then adds software from six broad categories, further expanding Freespire's capabilities:

    1. CNR Plugin provides free one-click access to thousands of open source applications, as well as options for legally licensed DVD playback software, Sun's StarOffice, Parallels Workstation, Win4Lin, CodeWeaver's Crossover Office, TransGaming's Cedega, commercial games and many more.

    2. KDE is added for an easier-to-use and more comfortable interface, with a familiar look & feel for Apple Mac and Microsoft Windows users.

    3. Enhanced applications and features are added for enhanced usability and ease of use, modifying software applications like Firefox and Thunderbird, along with adding Linspire-sponsored open source software like Nvu, Lsongs and Lphoto.

    4. Proprietary software is added when necessary, like Java, Flash and Adobe Acrobat, to provide overall increased interoperability.
    Proprietary codecs are added to expand multimedia compatibility and provide a superior overall experience so users can listen to MP3 files, play Windows Media files, and much more.

    5. Proprietary drivers are added to expand hardware compatibility and provide optimum 3D graphic card support, better WiFi support, and more.

    Also, Freespire...

    System Requirements:

    In order to install Freespire you must have:

    - PC with 800MHz processor (1Ghz recommended)

    - 128 MB of RAM (256 MB or higher recommended for best performance)
    Note: with shared video 128 MB of RAM will result in a less than optimum experience, 256 MB is the minimum in those cases.
    Note: using emulators (Crossover Office, Win4Lin, etc.) is RAM intensive, so minimum recommended is 512 MB.

    - Hard drive with 4 GB free space

    - SVGA or higher resolution and monitor (3-D graphics accelerator card for some games, screen savers, etc.)

    - CD-ROM or DVD drive, Keyboard & Mouse (The computer must support booting from the CD or DVD drive. Most modern computers can do this.)
