Linux There's always a lot of excitement when a major Linux distribution has a new release - there's the clamour for the release notes and changelog, as well as the insatiable urge for screenshots and the search for the torrent for the ISOs. The release of Xandros Desktop 3.0 last week was no exception, with OS fanatics everywhere curious just what was in store. Read on for details.

Whatta want to know? Most people are curious and want to know what they get OUT OF THE BOX. Slackware, Gentoo, and FreeBSD are NOT the distros Xandros is competing with, and the users of those three are probably NOT looking to buy Xandros.

Your answers are dead simple, and they don't address the selling points, which are that Xandros users don't want to edit /etc/fstab or download and compile apps. Furthermore, Xandros comes with Apache and MySQL. Those are SERVERS. I would not use this edition as a server. Is that not a fair comment?

What is "technical stuff?" Can't you just get the specs from the release notes? Ask any question you have and I'll try to answer it for you.
