Oracle and SUN Xandros Business Edition provides a desktop environment, Xandros is easy to install and maintain. As an added bonus, Xandros Business Edition includes the full edition of CrossOver Office 4.2. That means that if there is a major Windows software package that you can't live without, chances are you will be able to install and run it on Xandros through CrossOver.

a great business desktop

I think Xandros is a great business desktop. Yes, I am prejudiced. I currently run Xandros 3 Deluxe at work. It's a great OS for when you have to work in a Windows environment but need the extra functionality of Linux. I've had no issues connecting to network shares or printers on our AD network and OpenOffice works fine for me as a replacement for MS Office (and if it didn't, I've got Crossover Office installed as well). Most days I don't think about the fact that I run Linux, I just do my job.

Anyways, it's a good review. Xandros is for those people who want to get their work done without worrying about all of the security headaches of Windows.
