Come on Baby Run Linspire


We're completely transitioning from Lindows to Linspire over the next two months. Here's the official announcement.


We thought it was a smart business decision at this time, so we're investing the time to change our website, building signs, and corporate documents. Upcoming upgrades of our software will be rebranded entirely as Linspire. We'll do our best to minimize the impact to users, but this change will trickle down to all versions and all languages including English, Japanese, Spanish and Italian. It will NOT change how our products function or overall appearance. But future versions will have a 5 letter change from "Lindows" to "Linspire." While we're waiting for the new business cards, we hope you'll change your bookmarks and other web links to Linspire. Links to Lindows.com will continue to work, but it would be helpful if everyone would switch them over. Ideally, in the near future, Linspire will beat Lindows in a googlefight.

While our name is changing, our passion for bringing choice is not. We strongly believe that most desktop software is too expensive because there has been a lack of healthy competition. Software should be much more affordable than it is and Linux is the solution. But Linux has been much too complicated for all but the most technically savvy, which is why we built CNR, a one click way to add software for hundreds of improving Linux programs, allowing you to update your system or sign up for services. Our mission at Linspire is to bring Linux to the mass market - be it home, school or business users. We want to commercially support Linux, so retailers will have confidence and will stock pre-installed Linux computers to give people an alternative to the expensive, virus-prone alternative.

We hope whatever our name is, we'll continue to get your support and feedback. And maybe you can tell a friend to try Linspire...
