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.

Are they only planning of releasing an ISO or are they going to open the repositores to public so people can install minimal and grab rest off apt.

I will try it once such repositores are up! ;)

We already do this.

You already can, no need to wait.

I think you missed the part about "install minimal" though.

The freespire repository is up and running but it appears fairly limited and some stuff is broken and you can not mix it with a debian repo.

I wonder what would happen if you installed a base of debian, then used the freespire repos?

Link please?

I have searched on your Wiki and website without any luck.

http://ftp.ussg.iu.edu/linux/freespire/ only has the ISO.

Are they only embedded in your APT or can we browse them publicly?
