Really Good Product

I've been a long time linux user and always get annoyed by the bloated menus and distributions. That is always problamatic for new users who don't understand which browser or email client they should use. I've tested for most distro out there and I think that Xandros is one of those distros which will actually be ready for the consumer market. I think that if they do it right, like updating their interface to more modern look, and adding some extra software to their basic package they will be very successful. As of right now 9/10 times this distro works out of the box on every system that i have tested and had drivers for majority of my hardware and devices.
-K3B is a must
-Option to install more devel tools (for people familiar to linux)
-An easier way to get and install themes.
-Do some work on Kopet it crashed alot for me prefer gaim
