Cool! I wasn't going to download the alphas, but now I think I am upon that news. One major turnoff for me in using Linspire/Freespire (and Xandros and Suse and others) was the loooong boot time compared to Windows, Solaris and smaller distros like Zen. Ubuntu 6.10 was very refreshing in this regard for a mainstream distro.

I hate to add a comment to this attention lacking thread...but...

My boot time is still like 1:46 seconds, it is better but not amazing IMO.
