Specifically this Mirus PC will run Freespire, a version of Linux developed by Linspire Inc. (formerly Lindows). Larry Kettler, CEO of Linspire says “our system builders have been forging new ground in the low-end Linux PC market for over 5 years now . . . This latest system from Mirus Innovations is the most robust hardware and software configuration, and offers the best value for under $200 to date,” according to the company’s press release.
