I have never used linspire but I have heard of and used some alternatives made to be friendly. I suppose linspire might be the most user friendly but using these forums I got by with ubuntu very well. Anyway I would try running virtual machines like vmware. They recently realeased a free player and you can download ubuntu as a virtual machine from their site. Try out the diffrent distrubutions and see how you like them. If they seem like too much I suppose you could try linspire but it is not in the spirit of linux because you have to pay for it. Anyway it is up to you but I recomend ubuntu or if you want it to be more like linspire get kubuntu with the kde desktop. Linspire uses kde.
