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.

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....

Linux Backup and Recovery Webinar

Most companies incorporate backup procedures for critical data, which can be restored quickly if a loss occurs. However, fewer companies are prepared for catastrophic system failures, in which they lose all data, the entire operating system, applications, settings, patches and more, reducing their system(s) to “bare metal.” After all, before data can be restored to a system, there must be a system to restore it to.

In this one hour webinar, learn how to enhance your existing backup strategies for better disaster recovery preparedness using Storix System Backup Administrator (SBAdmin), a highly flexible bare-metal recovery solution for UNIX and Linux systems.
