LINSPIRE & PARALLELS EXPAND DESKTOP LINUX VIRTUALIZATION.

Linspire, Inc., developer of the Linspire commercial and Freespire community desktop Linux operating systems, and Parallels, Inc., maker of award-winning desktop virtualization solutions for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, have announced the immediate availability of Parallels' Workstation 2.2 desktop virtualization solution for Linspire and Freespire desktop Linux users via CNR, a one-click delivery service for desktop Linux software.

"Virtualization continues to impact the industry," said Randy Linnell, vice president of Business Development of Linspire. "We're excited about expanding our relationship with one of the leaders. Parallels has been a heavily requested product that delivers great performance and ease-of-use at an attractive price point, we're happy to satisfy our customers by making it available through CNR."

Parallels Workstation for Linux is a powerful, easy-to-use, and cost-effective virtualization solution which empowers Linux users to simultaneously run any version of Windows, including Windows Vista, any Linux distribution, Solaris, FreeBSD, NetBSD, OpenBSD, OS/2, eComStation or DOS, in a stable, secure virtual machine on any Linux-powered PC. No re-booting or partitioning is required, and users never need to shut down or leave their home desktop to access a virtual machine. The companies recently announced a technology partnership where Linspire is working as a Parallels Technology Network Partner to make a Freespire Virtual Appliance available.

"The combination is a perfect fit: Linspire, Freespire and Parallels Workstation already work flawlessly together and each of these products was designed from the beginning with user convenience in mind," said Benjamin Rudolph, Director of Corporate Communications, Parallels. "By introducing Parallels Workstation to CNR, Linspire and Freespire users now have a great way to experience multi-OS functionality within their current distribution."
