Oracle and SUN "After suffering through version 1.0 many years ago, I thought Xandros would be the least likely of the commercial desktop GNU/Linux distributions to succeed. Each subsequent release since 1.1 has changed my mind a little bit, and now with version 4.0 of its home desktop edition, I'm at last convinced that Xandros is positioned for success. This should be the desktop operating system that you recommend to your Windows-hating friends and family."

Hardware and apps

Some good points made about applications and hardware. One point I would like to make about hardware compatibility... Blame should be more focused toward the hardware manufacturer not Linux. The manufacturer is responsible for releasing a driver. They do for Windows and some do for Mac. This is improving, but there is a long way to go.

When more people start to use Linux then commercial software developers will begin to write apps for Linux. At this point there is not much $$$ in it for them.
