I have the CD for Freespire but I need advise and information because before I leap into this new system. I was told that if I am familiar with Windows XP installing Freespire should be a walk in the park. One thing I understand though is that switching between OSs is like changing orientation so I may be in for a big surprise and probably disappointment.
So if anybody please enlighten why I should or should not take the plunge...thank you very much.
Is it the latest Freespire 2.0 you have the CD for? That would be the latest.
tells how to use the CD as a LiveCD
See what you think of it.
I hope you are considering dual booting rather than switching cold turkey. Linux is great, but Linux is not Windows
. People who attempt to switch cold turkey and expect Windows are usually disappointed.
Try a couple LiveCDs and install the one you prefer as a dual boot.
