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.

Its no different then Fedora vs RH..
I don't get it, no one complains to pay for 6months of support for an os, but to buy the Os, now that's a problem?

No do I. I don't see how Linspire is any different then Xandros. On top of that now Xandros is making you use license keys like Windows. Its crazy! But no one is calling them out on it. But soon as you say Linspire its like calling someone a crackhead, you looking at them different.

So they sell Linspire (Really it's the OS and Support)

Maybe I am blind but I am not seeing anything different between what Linspire does and what any other paid version of Linux does.
