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.

Don't get me wrong. I think freespire is a step in the right direction, I just hope it is more than a step it is also your heart or should I say Linspires heart?
(that doesnt make any sense does it)

I think you took a good step, I hope you continue to move in this direction. I hope you realize this can be a great benefit to the company if you will see it thru and truly move in this direction.

Sorry if I am a bit skeptical but I wont believe a bit of it until I see a "free" version and that the "free" version isn't treated like some two-bit hunk of junk that is only used as a tease to get people on the proprietary and the CNR subscriptions.

Of course I would like to not be banned at the linspire forums also since I have no idea why I am banned. ;)
