Xandros Here is OSNews' review of Xandros Desktop Home Edition Premium version 4.0 (a mouthfull). Xandros Systems was so kind as to provide OSNews with the top of the line version of their product, which includes, among other things, complete copies of Versora Progression Desktop, CrossOver Office, and various non-Free drivers and utilities. Read on for the complete review.

Thom, don't be silly. There is evidence that software piracy exists, and that crime exists. That doesn't mean you or I can legitimately accuse the other of being a software pirate, a thief or a rapist without any evidence that the other has in fact pirated, stolen, or sexually assaulted some{thing,one}.

So let me get this straight-- by having an activation scheme in its OS... Xandros accuses me of being a pirate? I'm sorry, but that makes no sense.

In The Netherlands, students get subsidised by the state. The amount of this depends on whether I live with my parents, or alone; when I live alone, I get a lot more money from them. The government checks whether I *really* live on my own. Does that mean the government thinks I'm a fraud?

Of course not.
