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.

Just installing it now, and oh wow, the installer just doesn't compare to anything else. It's so simple it makes installing Windows/Ubuntu/OS X look over complicated.

If Freespire shows it can be done, why is it so hard for others to follow, really?
