Linspire, Inc. http://www.linspire.com was founded in 2001 to bring choice into the operating system market. The company's flagship product, the Linspire operating system, is an affordable, easy-to-use Linux-based operating system distributed primarily pre-installed on PCs for home, school, and business users. Linspire pioneered the CNR Technology, which allows Linspire users access to thousands of software programs, each of which can be downloaded and installed with just one mouse click. The thousands of software titles available in the CNR Warehouse http://www.linspire.com/cnr include full office and productivity suites, games, multimedia players, photo management software, accounting tools, and more. Linspire was acquired by Xandros, and no longer develops or supports the Linspire OS.
