SquiggleOS (previously: Freespire) – a Linux distribution built from publicly available open source packages provided by Linspire, a prominent North American Linux vendor.

SquiggleOS conforms fully with the upstream vendor’s redistribution policies and aims to be 100% binary compatible. SquiggleOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding and artwork.

The Freespire was a name of a separate, free version of Linspire Linux distribution. Andrew Betts having released a distribution by the same name late 2005. Linspire asked Betts to change the name, and SquiggleOS was born (and has died too, no one is currently developing SquiggleOS). Betts was asked to contribute to the official Freespire project, serving on Linspire’s Freespire Leadership Board.
