Linspire is a GNU/Linux distribution that has been modified as much as possible to resemble Windows. No relation to Windows...

Well.... hmmm... LK... I'd say being Linux based, it runs faster, and has more upgrades and customization features... Other then that, no differences..

Personally I really don't like what Linspire is doing. Bt their intnetion is to make it really easier for Windows users to migrate to GNU/Linux.
