Linspire/Freespire are back!

Freespire 6.0.3

Seems like that once dead distro pair are back in development, after going missing for ten years. (I think it was originally conceived by Andrew Betts.)

The Linspire and Freespire (and Xandros) marks were obtained from Bridgeways Inc by PC Opensystems LLC in 2018. They are now using them for their own Linux distributions; one being free (price) and one being paid for. Apart from the name and logos very little is the same as the original releases.

Q) How did we acquire the Linspire / Freespire trademarks?

We acquired them through Bridgeways.ca before they went out of business. We now own them and it has been our decision since to market them.”
