Freespire Linux 7.7 Released

Today, the PC/OpenSystems LLC open-source development team releases Freespire 7.7. This update launches an entirely new direction for our distribution products, Freespire, Linspire and Xandros, by incorporating a cloud app approach.

Since this is Freespire, our community-support build, we did not incorporate anyone’s specific web apps into the distribution. The selection is entirely the user’s choice. And for more traditional use cases, the core of Freespire has not changed at all – it’s still a full-featured desktop OS. All of the applications and resources of the Ubuntu repositories are available, as always. The distribution includes:

  • Xfce 4.16 desktop
  • Linux kernel 5.4
  • Synaptic
  • Google Chrome 92
  • DuckDuckGo as the default search engine and homepage
  • Ice SSB
  • KPatience
  • DreamChess
  • Geary mail client
  • KolourPaint
  • Parole
  • Rhythmbox
  • Caja as the default file manager
