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.

Never mind, figured it out I think.

Looks like by default root is disabled.

If you log in as the regular user and then open the user manager, root is disabled.

Looks like as a regular user you can enable root from the user manager.

Not sure how secure this is, but it's better then starting out as root!
