Yes, I still check it occasionally (http://www.freespire.org
), but it is essentially dead, since Xandros has given up the ghost on this purchase, and we can assume they only wanted cnr as a ready to run system..http://www.cnr.com/
--something that apparently really appeals to windows users, hence Xandros business interest..
Some abortive attempts to invigorate Linspire/Freespire have been made, like Phoenix or Imagicos or even Kiowa
--however they seem to be mostly that abortive attempts; especially that ImagicOS guy (Carlos), who to my mind simply inserted himself into Freespire forums to drum up business for himself.http://www.freespire.org/http://www.phoenixos.org/http://www.imagicos.com/
--seems phoenixos is too similar to imagicos (including web site) for my taste; despite protestations of the erstwhile developer/business person leading the product..http://www.oneclicklinux.com/2009/02/ne ... n-way.html
--I don't know how close this isI am still waiting for Beos to be fully reborn and fully developed
--multiuser, multilogin mode; I don't mind if they maintain the simplified screen look, it works; especially with the Tracker application http://www.haiku-os.org/
--they have limitations and its been about 8years, but they are trying and have something ready
And they are forgetting that Beos 5x personal edition is a free download, and since they haven't changed it much, makes them the competition to that distribution (of Beos)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BeOShttp://www.bebits.com/http://www.bebits.com/app/2680
--download of beos 5 personal edition
Also glad to see bebits is still in business..
