Xandros Desktop 2.0 Deluxe
Overall, I have to say this is the most user-friendly Linux distribution I have ever used. The Business edition promises the ability to authenticate users to a Windows Primary Domain Controller or Active Directory domain and offers SAP and Citrix clients. The Deluxe edition is ideal for home or small-business users in a workgroup environment or for people who don't need to authenticate to a Windows server. At $89 US, the Deluxe edition is a steal. I also have to say that even someone raised on a Windows platform would feel at home on a PC running Xandros Desktop 2.0. Better support for CrossOver Office and other third-party applications on the official update site is needed, but Xandros Desktop 2.0 still is my desktop environment and Linux distribution of choice.
