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.

"If you take a look at the results of these blogs here: you might be surprised to see the highest level of agreement was for my piece called Freespire: The "Hybrid" OS. Yes, as with anything, you can't please all the people all the time, but it would appear the idea of letting FOSS and all other software play nicely together is an idea that most people seem to like."

What result would you expect to see on a linspire forum, and users receiving the linspire letter? I am pretty sure if I stick a poll on a can of coke about which soda is best then I will get a obvious answer. Nice try though.
