Xandros Acquires Linspire

Linux distribution maker Xandros announced today that it had acquired Linspire, developer of the Click'N'Run software distribution facility and the Linspire and Freespire Linux desktop operating systems. The company hopes to integrate Linspire's CNR technology with its own digital software distribution service to speed up Xandros' expansion into the applications space and create a "one-stop Linux solutions company," according to its press release.

"Xandros has emerged as a leader in the OEM, mobility, desktop and PC management and application business, so I'm excited to see the Linspire technology, including CNR, go to a worthy competitor that shares our vision," said Linspire Founder & Chairman Michael Robertson.
