PLEASE NOTE: You can't install LinspireLive on your hard drive. It doesn't have an installer. However, if you know what you're doing, you can install software programs and save files on your hard drive. Aside from that, it's a fully functional operating system.
(Keep in mind that you can't install LinspireLive on your hard drive.)
If you have a broadband connection, you can download Linspire for free if you know the current coupon code. Linspire makes one available once in a while, but you can only find it on certain web sites. Do a search for ''linspire coupon code'' to find it.
To get it for free, enter the current coupon code, if there is one, and click Apply Coupon.
Note: The coupon is sometimes only valid with the single CD, not with the bundles.

ATTENTION: Before installing GNU/Linux on a hard drive that has your data on it, make sure you back up your data first! And check your computer's hardware for compatibility.
