Linspire In a short story with a happy ending, the developer of a free version of Linspire called Freespire has agreed to change the name of his project, and Linspire is offering free copies of Linspire Linux for a few days. Freespire, which first popped up on Distrowatch last week, described itself as a free variant of Linspire Linux, with proprietary components and trademarks removed.

Hmmm - in the lawsuits, the DOWS part was what MS claimed was too similar. Guess "Lin" is free as if you add "ux" then it's a trademark. Linspire should be ashamed. Lots of distros based around Knoppix with similar names, etc. Linspire ought to be ashamed.
