Linspire Kevin Carmony of Linspire/Freespire has announced that the first beta of Freespire has been released earlier than anticipated. Get it from the download page. According to Carmony, this release includes out-of-the-box support for proprietary formats such as .mp3 and WMV, plug-and-play support for Ati and nVIDIA cards without user intervention, Click-N-Run, and much more.

Hard to say of course, but I imagine there would be some desire, since Freespire was originally an entirely community created alternative (not that one would know it, given that their page says "Linspire is the founder, maintainer and lead sponsor of the Freespire project.") Unless you're thinking that any interest was exactly because Linspire wasn't involved, and that it will disappear now that they are ;)
