Linspire, Inc. today announced that their name change from Lindows is now official. Stemming from a recent legal settlement with Microsoft Corporation, the San Diego Linux desktop maker will no longer use the term Lindows in any current activities, including the company's website.

The San Diego-based Linux desktop maker, changed its corporate identity to "Linspire" subsequent to a Microsoft settlement.

Lindows had filed a registration statement with the SEC in April for an initial public offering (IPO) of its common stock with a goal of raising $57.5 million. That plan was shelved earlier this month.

Terms of the settlement with Microsoft are said to be confidential, but it is detailed in the updated SEC filing that Microsoft paid Lindows.com $20 million.

It is unclear where this leaves Microsoft's claim of ownership of the word "Windows" as a trademark.
