Lindows, Freespire, Linspire, ... do you remember those names, those distros projects that intended to revolutionize the world of Linux distributions with an interface very similar to that of the operating system Microsoft Windows and with that CNR (Click & Run) technology that was intended to revolutionize the world of Linux with very simple installations with a single click without using commands. Well, now this project has resurfaced as you will know if you continue reading us.
In addition, today we are going to present you an edition of this very peculiar cloud-based distro, it is the new version of Linspire Cloud Edition 8.0 that comes with many new features. However, many are the enemies of this distro as we have sometimes told, due to that close relationship with Microsoft, but it must be said that for all those who are not found, I will tell you some things about it.
Now, Linspire CE 8.0 comes with Office 365 integrated, a good quality for many who miss Microsoft's office suite when they land on Linux, since they denote some shortcomings in the LibreOffice, Calligra, OpenOffice, etc. project. I defend these projects, but I understand that some companies or users prefer Microsoft's product… So if you don't want to give up Office or Linux, Linspire is probably a good option for you.
You can also enjoy a KDE Plasma desktop environment, and many other popular applications pre-installed on the distro, such as Google Chrome web browser, VLC media player, Skype for VoIP conferencing, Office 365 online launcher I already mentioned, Microsoft Powershell, etc. If you want this product, you should know that it is not free, since you must pay $ 49,99 per user for its license, or purchase a corporate unlimited license for $ 1.500,99. A fairly high price, but perhaps not too high for certain educational centers or companies ...
