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.

Butters, I will respectfully have to disagree. You claim they have not developed any useful software for the community. I think it is hard to define useful. I would say the features offered in hot words and Lsongs are extremely useful.

As far as the timing, I think the timing is right, but only time will tell which of us is correct on that score. ;-)

BTW, there was no trap into any license argument in an earlier statement. My sentence was exactly what it was a nothing more.


PS I am open to offline discussion with you in a respectful fashion. Too much posturing in the public forum. =)
