Oracle and SUN "It's been a while since I looked at Xandros. True to form, it has remained one of the easiest to use and flat out slickest Linux distributions available. This version of Xandros focuses on the 'digital lifestyle' and includes wireless network profiles, a music manager with iPod and MP3 support, photo manager, video players and internet telephone via Skype, among other things. This version also provides good security tools such as a built-in firewall and anti-virus."

As a Xandros 3 Deluxe user, I always enjoy seeing reviews of Xandros. I thought this reviewer did a very good job. I've always enjoyed Xandros for it's simplicity and ease of use. I plan on upgrading to version 4 when I get some spare time.

I think one of the best attributes of the review was that the reviewer was willing to point out what was "wrong". No distro is perfect and for some people, Xandros will really rub them the wrong way. However, for those who want ease of use and to just have an OS they can install and forget about.

Some of the new features that weren't mentioned is the read and write access to NTFS (Windows) partitions and the new disk manager. I am excited for those.

Anyways, for some Xandros would probably be a waste of time and money. For me, it saves time and is well worth the money. That's the real beauty of Linux: there's a flavor out there for everyone; just pick the one that works for you.
