Lindows runs Windows too

What do you do for a follow up if you have already started one of the most successful sites on the web? If you are Michael Robertson, founder of MP3.com, you start up www.lindows.com.

What do you do for a follow up if you have already started one of the most successful sites on the web? Well, if you are Michael Robertson, founder and former CEO of MP3.com, you start up a software company with the name of www.lindows.com.

At the core of the new company’s development effort is a new operating system called LindowsOS – an operating system with the ability to run both Microsoft Windows and Linux software.

Development of LindowsOS is underway at present and a sneak preview of the software has already been tested by a few insiders close to the company.

The new software certainly has some compelling features, such as a friendly install alongside an existing Microsoft Windows operating system, a streamlined installation process which requires no computer knowledge and the ability to run popular Windows-based programs.

‘Running Windows-based programs is one of the most challenging features to build for LindowsOS, but one of the most exciting because its users can safeguard their investment and knowledge with their existing Windows-based programs,’ says Robertson.

Robertson hopes that version 1.0 of the software will begin selling later this year.

Microsoft, naturally, are suing the company.
