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.

RE[3]: Freespire...

A half a million huh. So how many vote on your agree/disagree poll then? No the fact is that you are skewing my theory. When it comes to other things even linspire users may not agree but when it comes to something they obviously already agree with then they are pretty quick to agree. I am sure it is more that respond to your letters than just linspire users but most of those responding would be linspire or another commercial OS user and/or at the very least would be someone receptive to the idea of what linspire is doing or else why would they sign up for the linspire letter in the first place?

I am not saying the thought that a lot of people out there WANT a "hybrid os" I am just saying your proof is actually VERY week.

I already get the feeling I am a second class citizen in your eyes because I am one of those that want the "free" version. You seem to want people to agree with you that a "hybrid os" is a good thing and yet you cannot agree that a truly "free" os is a good thing also. So if you cant agree with me, I wont agree with you...
