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.

RE: vs Ubuntu

Since Ubuntu is Gnome based I doubt it comes ahead in speed. I have installed and used both, Xandros is considerably faster since it is based on KDE. Maybe Ubuntu boots faster. Not sure.

In terms of look it depends on what you preference is. Xandros is more understated and professional looking.

Multimedia - Ubuntu is probably better to me as it has a real jukebox standard. Xandros may have other things Ubuntu does not.

Ease of use - you can't get much easier than Xandros so I don't really think it could come out ahead. Maybe a tie.
