Xandros Desktop 2.0 Deluxe

Xandros 2.0's list of built-in applications is extensive.

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.

Dean Staff is a network administrator for the IT Department, Inc., in Ottawa, Ontario Canada, where he lives with his wife and two children. He has been using Linux for about five years. His particular interest in Linux is as a desktop replacement for Windows and as an e-mail server.

I purchased a copy of the Businesss edition and I am VERY pleased with the results. I had only a minor video problem installing the system to coexist with my WindowsXP installation. I ran the repair utility from the CD and all is well. The Xandros Desktop has a new convert....
