Freespire 6.0 Released

Today is another great day for the Freespire development team, as we announce the release of Freespire 6.0. This release is our FOSS solution, with no binary-only drivers or multimedia codecs included and strictly Libre applications. Freespire is released bi-annually and showcases the best that the open-source community has to offer. Our users enjoy a multitude of different desktops - for this release we are releasing the MATE desktop first; KDE comes next, keep an eye out for it. With Windows 7 at the end of life, many people have PCs which may not be optimal for Windows 10; now is a good time to migrate to one of the most recognized desktop Linux distributions, which is optimized for just these sorts of PCs.

 Here’s what’s offered:

 MATE 1.20
Kernel 5.3.0-28
Chromium Web Browser
Software Center
Synaptic Package Manager

 Fully community supported by other users and contributors, with an intuitive layout for ease-of-use, Freespire 6.0 is the latest and greatest high-performance desktop distro available, stable as a table and backed by the full scope of Ubuntu / Debian software. Please give it a try! You can download it here:
