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.

Until Linspire proves that they can _develop_ FOSS software that's useful to the free software community, there's no reason for the community to develop for Linspire.

Nvu, Lsongs and Lphoto are Linspire open source projects, besides the other many projects others have started that we contribute to. Other distros use these programs, in fact, I noticed Debian just added Lphoto.
