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.

nice flamers here

Note: If you have a laptop, check the forums to be CERTAIN that it will work with Xandros before buying. Else you will be in the same boat as myself and a ton of others, who have installation problems on laptops..
Bloody thing starts up, claims it's installing, then has the balls to turn around and look me in the eye and claims that it can't even find the CD! This, after it just booted from the CD!!
Some lucky bloke @ my LUG is going to get a free Xandros 3.

By any chance, does your laptop use an external USB CD drive? If so, pass the parameter "bootusb2" to the kernel. I had to do that to install Kanotix - worked like a charm.
