Since all answers are from 2012 or earlier and the setspace-package is archived:

Do I use this package or do I use linespread for line spacing?

Is there a difference between those two options i.e. when it comes to header/footer?

    l2tabu recommends setspace because it cares for spacing in footnotes or list environments (§1.4) – Bernard Jun 5 '18 at 12:00
  • @Bernard and linespread does not do that? I didn't find anything about that. – Jabaal Jun 5 '18 at 12:53
  • I don't think so. Also, there's often some misunderstanding about, e.g. double-spacing: contrary to the naive point of view, it is not the same as \linespread{2}, because typograph take into account optical effects, and setspace also takes care of this. – Bernard Jun 5 '18 at 13:16
  • @Bernard so is it still okay to use setspace although it doesn't seem to be maintained anymore? – Jabaal Jun 5 '18 at 13:19

    It didn't change because there's nothing to be changed, I guess. – Bernard Jun 5 '18 at 13:21
