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.

My SB Live soundcard is not detected on X3....

the video card settings are greyed out in the control panel, and my external firewire drive isn't being recognized. On the plus side: it sees & mounts my NTFS partition on the other hard drive.

While overall the look and feel are good, and it is pleasing in many asthetic ways, functionally this release sucks. I've been a user since version 1, and every release since then has been a downgrade. I'm not happy with X3, I'm not going to hunt around for libs, drivers, etc for stuff that worked just fine in all previous xandros versions. And I'm replacing X3 with my old standby: mandrake.
