It’s a bit later than Linspire had planned, but the company’s 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.
