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.

So much for keeping it quiet

Kevin Carmony stated in his post that he wants to keep this early release quiet, as there are plenty of things to improve upon; he would rather have a media buzz surrounding the 1.0 release. I would not be surprised if this announcement hits the Distro Watch Weekly Newsletter.
