For all of you windows users that have been debating whether or not to change to Linux; now is the time to act, to see what it is all about.
The people at Linspire are giving Linspire 5.0 away for free (digital download only) until September 6th. Simply go to purchase the $49.95 digital edition, and then enter coupon code "freespire" to receive a $49.95 discount.
Linspire 'formally known as Lindows' has specifically designed a Linux distribution to appeal to the Microsoft/windows crowd. I beta tested for this company last year, and it was a GREAT desktop OS, keep in mind, this is not for the die hard, customizing Linux guy.
They are the closest thing to windows as any Linux distribution has ever gotten. The best part of their OS is the automated update utility, similar to Red Hat, and Windows, as well as the integration of wine to run actual windows applications.
