SAN DIEGO, Aug. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Lindows, Inc. today announced that it has elected to postpone the previously announced initial public offering of its common stock due to current adverse market conditions. The company's S-1 registration statement remains on file with the Securities and Exchange Commission and has not been withdrawn. Lindows will continue to evaluate market conditions and may proceed with a public offering at a later date. "Lindows won't be forced into a cut-rate IPO by a fickle stock market.
