I'm sure this will be news to most of you, but Lindows is giving away a free iso download to its Linspire OS. I discovered this tidbid o' info reading through Google news last night. You have to "buy" a download only copy of Linspire 4.5 in the online store and put it in your shopping cart, then once in your cart, click the "coupon code" option and type "lindows". It then deducts the full 49.99 price from your "purchase" and you get a free copy of Linspire for BitTorrent download. The press release said it will only be available "for a few days" so get your copy now. Sorry to offend, but I wanted to get my copy before I told a whole community of people, so Lindows doesn't cut the offer prematurely.
Anyway, I downloaded my copy, burnt it from the ISO, and installed it on a spare 3Gb drive that I crammed into my parents eMachine. The install was the easiest Linux distro install I've ever done (I've done and attempted many) Startup is really slow compared to XP or OSX, but the KDE interface is friendly, and it configured my internet during install, so I was rather pleased at how easy it is to boot and use when Windows gets on my nerves. I'd like to hear others' comments on Linspire if they get a chance to install it.
