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.

If you want easy SMB/CIFS Try MS Windows.

Microsofts software is much easyer to set up the Xandros. Much better hardware support. Much better performance. Much better games. Much better price (with a PC you can get XP Home for about $30)
Why would you run Xandros? Cause you hate MS? Is that really reason enough? I run Linux on a lot of machines casue I love to be in control of my machines. Pay money to loose that power? All you get with Xandros is an expensive Windows clone with much less software and hard ware support! YAY! Ehhh... NAY!
