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: PPTP Client

The PPTP client was what got my notice right away. It's hard for me to understand why nobody (distro), to my knowledge has included this before. IMO, it's huge in getting people to move to Linux. Being in the IT industry, so many of our clients use VPN's, and already have a number of issues trying to get their Windows boxes to connect without problems (user error mostly). If I can supply them with a commercial distro, and yes, the only way it would fly is if it's commercial (not my requirement but theirs), that has an out of the box working vpn client . . . well that's a huge part of the battle right there.
