Oracle and SUN 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.

RE: Can a Geek love Xandros ?

Nice to see a reviewer looking at things from a different perspective.
I like Xandros overall idea of an easy to use Desktop, although I use/prefer SuSE at the moment.
I am really waiting for a distro to have KDE 3.2 + Kernel 2.6 + Reiser 4. (non-beta versions).

I believe that this will be my switching point to exclusively use Linux instead of XP for my personal/home use. (I still need XP because of my professional activities).
the 3 components I am considering are not the only ones to make my turning point, but they somehow represent (at least to me) the point in time where I will have difficulty finding excuses to stay using XP. (Office XP is also one blocking factor that I am trying to remove).
