Submission + - Major "Internal Reorganization" at Linspir

Linspire Insider writes: Just two and a half weeks after the Deal with Microsoft, Linspire President and CEO Kevin Carmony was asked to clear out his locker on July 31st. And yesterday, August 2nd, several additional people were laid off or fired, or just quit, including most of the OS team and their only localization expert. In total, seven employees were lost, bringing the company roster down to around fifteen people. All this, despite the large influx of cash from their recent partnership, shows that Microsoft deal was useless to more than just users.

The near disbanding of the OS team is indicative of a major shift in the company's business model, now focusing almost entirely on their Click-N'-Run service.
