Linspire is available for free download


Hey Michael's minute has announced that Lindows (LINSPIRE) is available for free download. But you gotta know that pesky secret coupon code. Does anybody know what it is? Here's Michael's Minute:

Quote:
First, you must use a special coupon code. Simply click on $49.95 Linspire 4.5 OS from the order page. Then click on the 'Apply Coupon' button and enter the coupon code. Second, the download will only be available from our BitTorrent P2P system so our servers don't melt. Don't worry if you've never tried BitTorrent. It runs on Microsoft Windows, Macintosh and Linux computers and is easy to get started. We'll give you step by step instructions. And no, it's not an oversight that I haven't provided the actual coupon code. You'll have to guess what the one-word code is.

Why don't you just download it? The BitTorrent file is likely to be very small since it is just a seed - the way torrent works (as far as i know) is to take small parts of the total file from a number of different places.

Just download it yourself - it is likely to be much easier and quicker than asking someone to send it to you.
