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 that it matters, but as long as the base system is OSS, I can live with it" <- Here is the problem... Give your cash to diods like Xandros and there will _be_ no community left.
Is everyone running Linux (and the same distro) a good thing? I, for one, don't thing so. The more the better, Linux don't need the "Desktop"! Why, cause Linux is free. Linux needs nothing but coders. The only reason for Linux to be used on a computer is that the machine owner wants too! If noone want to use it and more, fine! RIP!
I dont care what other people use (as long as they like it). I just don't want people like MS and Xandros to lock me out from protocols and fileformats.
