The Verdict on Xandros
Were very pleased with this version of Xandros. Theres quite a bit of value here for anyone and we feel very comfortable recommending it to anyone who wants to move off of Windows and onto Linux. Its stable, easy to use, and comes with a good range of applications. Laptop wireless problem aside, in terms of ease of use, we think that Xandros has set a new standard for Linux distributions. We cant wait to see what version 4 of Xandros will look like...
