Following a warning from Microsoft that it may stop selling Windows in South Korea, Linspire President and Chief Executive Officer Kevin Carmony has offered to license his company’s distribution of Linux and basic office productivity software for use on every computer in the country for $5 million.
Carmony said he wrote to South Korea’s President Roh Moo-hyun offering to demonstrate the software to the president or his representatives. He told of the offer in a letter entitled “How Korea Can Protect National Security and Save $200+ Million,” posted on Linspire’s Web site on Thursday.
Carmony’s letter is here.
