New Xandros review



There is a review of Xandros 3.0 Business edition up at xyzcomputing

Xandros is a linux distribution designed for Windows users (or at least those migrating from Windows.) The review hits the highlights of features that make it able to integrate well with Windows machines. They mention the filesystem compatibility, networking compatibility with windows as well as the ability to install and run some windows applications (through a specialized version of crossover office.) What’s funny about this is most all Linux distributions these days have windows filesystem support and good networking compatibility. (SAMBA file server.)

Overall it looks to be a good review though, quick and easy installation. It looks as though Xandros has themed KDE to resemble windows XP, which personally I could live without, but they are trying to attract Windows users. If you’re mildly curious it would be worth reading.
