MSFreePC.com Coming Down

By Deane Barker on January 13, 2004

Calif. judge nixes online processing of Microsoft claims: Lindows put up the site, Microsoft sued, Lindows refused to remove it, and, well, here we are.

Lindows.com’s site, MSfreePC.com, promised to simplify the process and provide instant gratification. Users, after answering a few questions, were given Lindows’ Linux operating system or other open-source software instantly rather than having to wait six months for paper claims to be processed.

USAToday’s tag line was pretty funny: “Linux 0, Dead Trees 1.”
