Yes, Lindows is a Linux distribution.
Being GPLed doesn't require that they provide free downloads (though they have at various times done so). What it does require is that anyone they destribute Lindows to who asks them for the source code for GPLed software they use (original or modified) must be provided with said source code.
They are also not the only distribution that does not provide a free download version. Xandros (no free version) and Libranet (can only download an older version) being the best examples. Kind of ironic that all three are based on Debian.
