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.

Xandros 2.0 is great!

I have tried many of the Linux Distros, Suse 9.0, Xandros 1.1, and Mandrake 9.0. I had some minor "issues" with all of them(nothing is perfect, eh?). I even had to replace my old motherboard(it had problems, too), before I could successfully install Xandros 2.0. Even asked for my money back at one point and Xandros folks said "not a problem". However, Xandros 2.0 installed fine and is working great on my "improved system". I think Ming and the others at Xandros are on a good path for a Linux distribution that really works and has great potential for the future.
