Linspire, Freespire, whatever.

So there was this whole kerfuffle about the "Linspire" linux distribution and some other guy trying to use the name "Freespire" to recycle parts of Linspire and as always the Linux crowd is just so fucking uptight and earnest about the whole thing and yadda yadda there was finger pointing galore and wailing and moaning from both sides. But, finally, after mucho hand-wringing, the upshot of the whole mess is that everyone can score a free copy of the Linspire distro until the end of the Labout Day weekend by following the simple instructions here.

NOTE: You have to wade through some rhetoric from the guys on the Linspire thing to get through this, but it is actually worth it.
