Linspire


Hi,

I'm trying to download linspire Live. There are 2 download links and both are dead? Can anyone help?

Many thanks,

Phil

Why do you want Linspire? The Wikipedia page suggests that it has been discontinued and only Xandros exists now. I had a quick look at the Xandros site and it appears that you've got to pay for it. If you want to try Linux, then look at Ubuntu or Linux Mint. Both of those have live CDs.

Slightly off-topic, but anyone switching to Linux should read this:

http://linux.oneandoneis2.org/LNW.htm

Linspire was discontinued in 2007. You should choose something like Mint or Ubuntu.

Just a sidenote, Xandros is also discontinued since 2007, according to Distrowatch.

You probably mean "discontinued".

You are right, thanks for the hint, I corrected that.
