Interesting. Linspire was my first Linux distro, before I found out about Mepis. I had a notebook that came preinstalled with Linspire. I never got around to trying Freespire, but maybe I'll download it, just for fun. Can it be run live from a flash drive?

I downloaded the freespire iso and put it on a usb drive-then booted it live.

Before installing so you can run it live from usb before you install the iso to a hard dive.thanks john.

Yeah, I finally got around to doing the same, tested it live from a flash drive. Doesn't come with all the nice tools that MX has, but it seemed okay to me. I'm not planning on installing it, though.
