Linspire (originally known as Lindows) is an operating system based on Ubuntu which is now owned by PC/OpenSystems LLC as of 2022. It is an attempt similar to Corel Linux to put desktop Linux in the hands of the consumer. It can have a KDE Plasma, GNOME or Xfce desktop, along with several proprietary applications installed, it was intended to be easy to use and fully functional out of the box.

It also has a derivate named Freespire.
