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.

dissapointed with Xandros 3.0

I have to say, I was looking forward to the latest version of xandros 3.0 but its not much better than 2.0
I new the limitations regarding web content that v2.0 had and went straight to a web page with some video & audio streams to see if it could cope with them but sadly not so. All I got was no response.
When are Xandros going to realise that if you want to lure people off M$ windows and provide a linux alternative, then it must be able use all the multi-media content available on the net. I currently use Mepis which will play most of the content that people currently use windows media player for but xandros is way behind mepis in this departmant.
Maybe the people at Xandros should take a close look at Mepis & maybe they might realise what they have to do as a minimum & then improve on it to make it worth paying money for.
Until they do something realistic, I'm sticking with Mepis & guess what? ITS FREE
