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.

Based on the many good reviews of Xandros, I downloaded and installed the OC version. Sure, it's only version 2 but it is awesome; not because it has features nobody else has and not because it works with all hardware (no video drivers for a VIA Epia board). It is awesome because it has that "just works" feeling. It is a polished desktop; simple and refined. It is easy for you to find your way around. It is easy to configure. Xandros Networks is really nice for adding/updating apps.

Basically, it's a great tool. You install it and forget about it. For those that love to tweak, this is not for you; try gentoo. For those, like me, who just want to install and use, this is a great distribution. Your mileage may vary but this is best one that I've run across.
