Oracle and SUN 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,

In a community this cozy, if you treat your customers right, and show them that you trust them, there is every reason to expect that they will deal straight with you. Possibly even sending a little more money than required.

By requiring activation, Xandros is setting the tone for the relashionship. And it's not a good tone.

I'll admit there is a gamble involved. Xandros is on the conservative, conventional side of the gamble. But, in this case, I suspect it is also on the losing side.
