Freespire OS And Linspire OS

Post by TheOSGuy » Sun Dec 10, 2017 5:54 am

Do you know there was a Linux distribution which was abandoned very fast?
Well it was Linspire OS (earlier known as Lindows) was a Linux distribution which was meant to be replacement of Windows but it was quickly failed.
Freespire OS was the free version of Linspire OS that was Open Source (because Linspire was Mixed Source and not fully Open Source.)
These two OSes quickly abandoned because no one needed or even knew about it. :(
You can read about it on Wikipedia.
Linspire (earlier known as Lindows) - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linspire
Freespire - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freespire
I like to collect old OSes which are abandoned and forgotten and know the history about it.
