Linspire Offers Free Services To Desktop Linux Users

Filed under

Linspire announced the first of many free services offered to desktop Linux users. FreeLinuxEmail, an IMAP email and Net file storage service developed by Messaging Engine of Melbourne, Australia, provides desktop Linux users a free server-based email and file storage service that works with both web-based and client-based email. IMAP is a superior email protocol over POP systems offered by most free email services.

IMAP's server-side functionality allows email, folders, drafts, templates, and files to be accessed at anytime, from any computer, via the IMAP server. IMAP allows you to read, send and manage all your email and folders from multiple computers, such as from work, home or from a laptop when on the road, yet still use a powerful email client, such as Thunderbird or Evolution.

"On the heels of Freespire 1.0 and our free CNR Service, we are excited to now begin offering several free services to desktop Linux users," said Kevin Carmony CEO of Linspire. "FreeLinuxEmail is significant in that it is a full-featured IMAP service, not POP or only web-based, like most free email offerings. Desktop Linux users tend to be a power-hungry lot, and will prefer a free IMAP service. This is only the first of many free service offerings that we will be bringing out in the coming months for desktop Linux users."

Suse: Question. What do you call second-place in ARM enterprise server linux? Answer: Red Hat

ARM TechCon Suse is claiming victory over Red Hat by announcing – and these caveats are all crucial – "the first commercial enterprise Linux distribution optimized for ARM AArch64 architecture servers." In plainer English, Suse has developed an enterprise-grade Linux distribution that runs on 64-bit ARM servers (should you happen to ever find one). Suse claims this software is a world first because it is a finished commercial product, thus beating Red Hat to the punch: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server for ARM is still only available as a beta-like development preview.
