Oracle and SUN Overall, Xandros Desktop OS Version 3 Business Edition has proven itself to be a fine operating system. As a long time Windows user, who is forced to use XP on a daily basis, I really appreciated Xandros' approach to Linux-Windows integration and just how easy they made the transition from one operating system to the other.

I've been using Xandros for over 6 months now (the Deluxe version) and it is one slick distribution. It's main strengths (in my opionion) are:

1) The Windows-like environment makes transitioning easier.
2) The networking functionality for integrating into a Windows (NT Domain or AD) network is incredible. It's a very simple setup and just works.
3) Printing to a network printer is simple.
4) Crossover Office lets you run your Windows apps (the ones you can't live without)
5) Xandros Networks is a simple and painless way to install software and updates.
6) The Xandros File Manager makes file management easy.
7) It's very stable. I have had no issues with crashing or erratic behavior.

Well that's all I can think of right now. If you need a Linux distribution that plays well in a Windows network, Xandros is the best choice I've seen.
