Journal L. VeGas's Journal: Linspire as Beerware 1

Linspire, everyone's favorite WalMart distro, can be downloaded for free until September 6. They claim they are doing it to remove any confusion with Andrew Betts' Freespire, which is now called Squiggle. Actually, this confused me even more. According to their site, Linspire (free or not) includes "a lot of legal and paid-for 3rd-party licenses for things like mp3, Java, Flash, Quick Time, Windows Media, Bitstream fonts, Real media, music, etc.".

  • Does this mean I have to give out my rants for free until September 6th so that nobody confuses me with the newly named GNU-based distro?
