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.

Not too bad a distro
by AMD on Sun 18th Jan 2004 16:30 UTC

Having tried a whold bunch of distros over the past three years (I'm your typical 'average' user, btw) I finally thought Debian was the distro for me. But my fiance didn't really like the idea of using command line for running most of the apps. SO I gave Xandros 2.0 a try, and to my surprise, she thinks its even better than windows ;) .

As far as I am concerned, I still am using Debian, and there are no more arguements about me using a spartan OS. Its money well spent
