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.

I think having a totally free version IS a great thing. Linux has a zillion of 'em, and yes, that's great. I also think having Mac available is great. I think having Windows available is great, because I would never take that choice away from those who want it.

I think the more choices users have the better. I wouldn't restrict any choice from anyone. I'm not about leading the world from one choice to only one, different choice. I believe we need more choices, not less. I don't believe the only way I can get people to accept a new choice is by limiting their previous choices. I don't want people to use Linspire or Freespire...I want people to use the software that is right for them.

Kevin
