Linspire Normally only paid members get to beta test future Linspire releases, but the Italian branch of Linspire has opened the Italian beta program for Linspire 5.1 for everyone. Now, the catch obviously is that, well, everything's Italian, but with some guesswork and a dictionary you'll get there. Italian has a good one-to-one correspondence between vowels/consonants and sounds, so pronunciation shouldn't be too hard.

Agreed. I don't like to be one of those people complaining about article relevancy, I'm willing to admit different strokes for different folks and all that, but seriously.

Still, if Linspire can actually garner a posting for the limited release of a free beta for a linux distro instead of requiring you to pay for it, my hat's off to their marketing people, they're earning their keep.
