    FreeSpire is Debian based... it uses .deb packages.....
    you can install .rpm package in FreeSpire... convert .rpm to .deb format through 'alien'.

    You can download more than 2000 free programs by using CNR (Click N' Run).
    It's available both with Freespire and Linspire. Great choice!

    And those programs you mentioned are available through CNR.

    The installation process of Freespire is a piece of cake! Very very simple.
