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.

Member since:

I notice a great many of these posts also have the same nym on the the LOS forums (e.g. pollycat and CaptainTux). Did Kevin bring the rest of the horde with him?

Nope, we heard there was a party about the birth of our baby and wanted to see what all the fuss was about. ;-). Many of the names you see here are part of the Freespire and the Linspire forum.

Many of us have been with the Freespire forums and mail lists since it was announced. We helped form the community and let the Leadership Board know what we want from a Linux. This is our distro as much as it is his.

Did he encourage us to make our opinions and thoughts known? Yes. Would we have done so anyway? Yes.
