WINDOWS XP/ VISTA ALTERNATIVE
If you are thinking about buying a new PC but don't want to shell out the best part of 70-100 quid for Windows, or are looking for an alternative Operating System to the Microsoft Windows monolith, but one shares alot of the same features as Windows, then LINUX FREESPIRE is an ideal option for you.
If you have used Windows before or are new to PC use you will have no problem getting started with FREESPIRE.
Looking very similiar to Windows XP, this is a
perfect OS for those used to using Windows, but wanting to change
to a new LINUX Open Source system
FREESPIRE OS is one of the fastest growing LINUX Operating Systems and is considered particularly user freindly for new users. And being LINUX, there is a huge range of software available out there - and most of it for FREE! On top of that, LINUX Operating Systems are considered much safer to use as they dont have the same securtiy glitches and vulnerability to viruses and spyware that Windows Operating Systems are notorious for.
And added feature means that you can run this Operating System direct from the disc. You dont even need to install it to use it! That way you can give it a try before you do a full installation, or use it as as alternative on a PC that already has Windows installed.
What Makes Freespire Special?
With so many Linux distributions out there to choose from, you may be asking, "What makes Freespire special, or different from all the rest?" Here is a quick list of the main differences you'll find in Freespire than most other Linux distributions.
Things That Make Freespire Special
- Freespire has a unique philosophy with respect to open source software. Freespire combines the best that open source and free software have to offer (community-driven, freely distributed, access to source code, etc.), but also provides users the choice of including proprietary codecs, drivers and applications as they see fit. Freespire believes users should be completely free to use any software they wish on their Linux computer, without restrictions or limitations, including proprietary, open source, free, and commercial products.
- Freespire is designed specifically for use on the desktop. This focus shows in the level of polish and attention to detail you'll find in Freespire running on desktop and laptop computers.
- Freespire offers the easiest to use and the most powerful applications management system, CNR
- Freespire uses a ubuntu core based on Debian with ability to freely use apt-get, Synaptic or CNR.

- Freespire allows you to purchase and install legal, commercial applications, all with just one click, such as CyberLink PowerDVD player, Codeweaver Crossover, Win4Lin, TransGaming Cedega, Sun StarOffice, MyBooks, Bitstream Fonts, ThinkFree Office, commercial games, and more.
- Freespire doesn't just take open source programs and "toss them in." There are hundreds of changes made to programs such as Firefox, Thunderbird, KDE, GIMP, OpenOffice, etc. that you'll find in Freespire and the CNR Warehouse programs.
- Freespire is designed to be the easiest desktop Linux distribution in the world, yet still powerful and secure.
