Linspire 8 Enters Development Based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, Freespire 3.0.9 Is Out

Freespire 3.0.9 is a small incremental update of the free and open-source GNU/Linux distribution that includes all the latest security and software updates released upstream until June 11, 2018. It also introduces new light and dark modes, a full instance of the Calligra office suite, and replaces Mozilla Thunderbird with Kontact. Based on the Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system, the forthcoming Linspire 8.0 Linux OS just entered development over the weekend with the release of the first Alpha milestone, which gives users an early look at who the operating system will look like and what features it’ll incorporate.
