Default Linspire, the former Lindows, will become part of Xandros

According to Xandros, the deal was officially signed on June 19, but it appears both companies tried to slip the announcement under the rug.

Linspire is a Linux operating system that closely mimics the basic Windows GUI and was most popular among low-cost Linux PC bundles offered in Wal-Mart and Fry's. But with similar product offerings from Ubuntu and Mandriva Linux, the company has had a difficult time as of late competing with other Linux distributions. The same features that were designed to help lure users from Microsoft Windows to open source Linux are now available in the more popular competing Linux distributions.
