Oracle and SUN Yesterday we reported on rumours that Xandros would acquire Linspire. The official press release won't go out until tomorrow, but Xandros CEO Andreas Typaldos answered a set of questions about the acquisition, so read on for an inside scoop on the Xandros-Linspire acquisition and what it means for both companies.

Well I'm not sure what is REALLY going on here. Personally I have no stake in either company so could care less. I did try Xandros back in its heyday (even used Corel Linux which it was originally AFAIK) and while it was decent it offered nothing that made me want to pay for an upgrade. I think all the current distros (Ubuntu especially) probably surpass thsi combined company in features and users by now. My only concern is for a product that was also recently purchases by Xandros, Scalix email server. I implemented this product at my company a year or so ago and am concerned that its future is now tied to Xandros which seem to have a sketchy existance to say the least. Oh well. We'll see what happens. I may be looking at Zimbra (unless MS buys Yahoo) or (sadly) Exchange again in the near future.
