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.

Oh, and I should clarify that it wouldn't be a violation of the GPL governing the distribution of the distro (finally a good reason to use that abbreviation), it would be a violation of general copyright law with respect to the proprietary vendor's code.
