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.

KDE is the GDM in Linspire.
I used apt-get to load GNOME, which runs just fine.

Did you have to add a repository to get access to gnome on Freespire?

And how does it look and feel. The one thing I like about Ubuntu's gnome and Suse enterprise Gnome is both are nice changes from the default gnome setup.

Thanks. :-)
