LXer: Freespire jilts Ubuntu for Debian

Published at LXer:

Xandros has announced a new version of Freespire, to be based on Debian's forthcoming Lenny release, expected this fall. Xandros says it plans to "consolidate" its various offerings on Debian, following its acquisition of Linspire. Xandros acquired Linspire last month. Freespire is a free version of Linspire, and was previously based on Ubuntu. Following the release of a Lenny-based Freespire distribution, Xandros plans to bring out Xandros Desktop Professional 5, which will also be built on "the same open source code base," with added proprietary bits for "enterprise customers," the company says.
