Linspire Offers Free Services To Desktop Linux Users

Filed under
Misc

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."

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
