I don't know if I'm going to try it. I'm pretty happy with Kubuntu. I was just curious if anyone else plans on trying it out and if you are, will you be trying the completely free version or the one with proprietary files installed?

I didn't really think about

I didn't really think about trying it so no I couldn't say I'm planning it.

I generally dislike Linspire for its inclusion of proprietary stuff, but if Freespire is really all Free Software that might be worth at least a try. Otherwise, I'm not interested.

There's really lots of other interesting stuff out there pretty much outways Linspire and Freespire for me, and I'm personally happy with Arch. Smiling

I started playing with

I started playing with Freespire this evening. Other than graphics, I'm unsure what's changed from Linspire. I guess I could find a changelog, but I have yet to.

The CNR service is nice for purchasing software, and tracking what you've installed, but it's slow and the repository has always been out of date.

I think it's great for someone new switching to Linux, but anyone with experience won't use it for very long. That being said, I am playing with it, and I'll let you know my conclusions of Freespire.
