Linspire 12 Released

Today PC/OpenSystems is proud to release Linspire 12 our premier desktop distribution based on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.  Linspire 12 is the culmination of a year long development effort, the continuation of our long-standing tradition: to release the best commercially supported desktop distribution on the market. Unlike our competitors, we focus exclusively on making Linux accessible to the desktop audience. This means: We don’t make a server build, add an email client, slap on an office suite, and call the end result a desktop distribution. Instead, we focus on 4 main features : productivity, multimedia, web and development. For these we maintain very close relationships with our partners and customers to ensure that we deliver a distribution tailor-made for their needs. From the desktop environment to the choice of user applications, PC/OpenSystems includes only what we feel is the very best . 

 Linspire 12 includes the following, preinstalled: 
  •  GNOME 42.5 
  • Microsoft Edge 110 
  • Thunderbird 102 
  • Balena Etcher 
  • Rhythmbox 
  • GNOME Videos 
  • GNOME applications suite ie clocks, maps, weather, calendar and calculator 
  • Drawing application

For developers we include: 
  • .NET 7.0 SDK and runtime 
  • Powershell 7.3.2 
  • OpenJDK 11 SDK and Runtime
