    yes but you can only use the torrent if you manage to register and place the order, which is what I have just done.

    Normal download 1198 people in line waiting!

    Will use the torrent over night!

    yeah i have Mandriva LE2005 but i thought Linspire would be nice, just because you have to pay for it usually and now you dont.

    addis keep trying, I'm not sure about posting the link since it is a paid product which you only get free following the above.

    Well, half of the distros I listed are commercial distros, which come with nice box, manuals, support, etc. But since they're released under the GNU/GPL license, you can download them for free all the time. Linspire is one of the few distros that doesn't have a strictly for-free version, so they're the exception, not the rule. :)

    I've started downloading it now. I may or may not continue depending on whether i d/l mandriva instead. I just wanted linspire for my non internet enabled pc. (Currently using Damn Small Linux on that).

    Adds? In a Linux distro?!? Eeeewwwww. Yeah, If I was you, I'd just get myself a proper distro. Seriously, it seems Linspire is just trying to be a "better Windows". But you can't out-MS Microsoft, so if you want to try a Unix-like OS there are much better distros out there which are free in every sense of the word.
