Microsoft & Linspire Getting Friendly

June 14, 2007

“Looks like there’s a danger of some of the open-source software world and Microsoft breaking out into a huge big love in. Linspire, which started life as Lindows in an effort to antagonise Microsoft, has announced an agreement with the Redmond giant to co-operate in a number of areas.”

” It’s most worth of note that these new features only come with Linspire, the pay for product and not Freespire, which is available for free download. It’s not clear who specified this, but the benefits to Lindows is clear – income – and to Microsoft, they’re not making a free Linux product better, thus pushing people towards thinking that operating systems must be paid for. Free OSs terrify Microsoft.”
