About Freespire
Freespire is a community-driven, Linux-based operating system that combines the best that free, open source software has to offer (community driven, freely distributed, open source code, etc.), but also provides users the choice of including proprietary codecs, drivers and applications as they see fit. With Freespire, the choice is yours as to what software is installed on your computer, with no limitations or restrictions placed on that choice. How you choose to maximize the performance of your computer is entirely up to you.

This is the second BETA release of Freespire (Build 0.0.76). Please read this FAQ and the Release Notes before downloading or installing. This version is BETA software and is UNSUPPORTED. If you download this version you should not open support tickets. We recommend that you only install this software on a test machine.
