The new commercial version of Linspire's Linux distribution, Linspire 6.0, along with the free version, Freespire 2.0, and its revised click-and-run software update system, should be out by month's end.

Its a bit later than Linspire had planned, but the companys CEO Kevin Carmony told DesktopLinux that the new commercial version of its Linux distribution, Linspire 6.0, along with the free version, Freespire 2.0, and its revised click-and-run software update system, should be out before August.

"The plan [is] to have all three out by the end of the month," said Carmony.
The next edition of Freespire 2.0 will be built on Ubuntu 7.04. Previously, Linspire has been based on Debian. The next generation of Freespire will also incorporate the KDE 3.5.6, the new CNR and the latest third-party proprietary software, drivers and codices for better hardware and multimedia support.
