Xandros Some of the more experienced among the readers can surely configure CUPS with Samba by editing configuration files with closed eyes. This kind of exercise is useful and fun the first few times, but it can quickly become a mundane task if it has to repeated often. Wouldn't it be nice if we had a distribution that could do it near-automatically? In other words, wouldn't it be nice if we just used Xandros? And despite our natural resistance to use GUI for any kind of configuration, could we still love Xandros? Robert Storey investigates.

Xandros

From all the Linux distributions I tried, Xandros is the closest to bringing Linux on the desktop.

Finally somebody gets it, right out of the box everything is configured, all the plugins ar eworking and all the menu entries have icons. This distro is about polish.
