Xandros Desktop OS 3.0 is a solid, well-designed distribution.
As mentioned multiple times, this is a distribution targeted towards new desktop Linux users, such as those that may formerly have lived on Microsoft Windows systems. Xandros Desktop OS 3 gets high marks from me for correctly configuring the built-in wireless card and the display, both without any assistance whatsoever from me.
As a matter of fact, Xandros stands as the only Linux distributor that seems to make it their primary goal.
Others may claim that they are providing the ideal Windows-friendly distribution, but until they can show me a simple way to join a domain (Windows NT legacy and Active Directory), connect to network drives and have the choice to make them persistent over reboots, connect to shared printers, and manage users... Xandros, the leading developer of easy-to-use Linux alternatives to Windows, today announced that it is shipping version 3 of the Xandros Business Desktop operating system.
Xandros has established a world class technical support team.
The Xandros Open Circulation Edition is available for download at no charge from the Xandros web site.
