Resellers and white box builders will be able to speed their time to market, with Linux Build Service from Linspire.

Linspire has launched a service for its partners aimed at making it easier for resellers and white box builders to offer custom-built desktop Linux configurations.

The Linux Build Service will speed the time for market for VARs offering Linux desktop configurations, according to Linspire.   

"With desktop Linux, more and more partners are asking for customization so they can take control of the OS," Larry Kettler, Linspire's president and CEO, said in a statement. "This service will not only provide the feature sets they want, but cut the time it takes to get to market with their products, as well as greatly reduce the overall cost to deliver a custom desktop Linux operating system."
