We are changing the way we deliver Linspire to our users. Starting June 1, 2021 Linspire will have a physical delivery option only. We are doing this for several reasons.
1. Consistency, sometimes things go wrong with a downloaded ISO such as your internet hiccups, bad USB flashing etc.
2. Customer habits. We deliver more physical copies than downloads. over 80% of our users opt for the physical copies of Linspire and Xandros rather than the downloads
Now this does not mean downloadable ISO's will go away. If you request a downloadable ISO upon purchase we will still give that to you, but you will receive a physical copy anyhow. The scenarios where we will offer a download ISO are:
1. Customer request
3. Upgrades. When a new update comes out if you choose not to use the updater, we will offer current customers a shiny new download ISO 4 weeks before general availability (The same way we do Xandros)
4. System restore, if you purchase a system from us and you lose your restore disk a download ISO option along with a physical option will be available
Pricing is being reduced for Linspire. Starting June 1, 2021 the price of Linspire will be:
$29.99 USD per license + $11.00 USD for all US Shipping, this will cover insurance on your package
$29.99 USD per license + $25.00 USD for all International Shipping, this will cover insurance as well as customs fee's etc
If you try to skirt the system and order a US copy and give us an international shipping address it will be refunded immediately. If you are ordering a copy for someone overseas the international shipping must be used.
We do believe this will be a great value add for our customers and users
