Oracle and SUN These days, the big players in the Linux "purely-desktop market" are Lycoris, Lindows, ELX and the much awaited Xandros Desktop 1.0. OSNews got their hands to the latest version of Xandros (beta3b) and we are giving it a whirl. Read more for information and screenshots.

I'll stay away from it

I won't use it.
I personally do not like making KDE or Gnome look like Windows(Lycoris seems to be my exception on that). Sure I don't mind a windows theme and functionality, that way I can change the theme to what I want. I'm all fine and good with networking with windows and having wizards and easy config tools, though.

I might try it if I am able to do one thing. Will I be able to install Gnome?

I noticed they aren't following the LSB's recomendations for file system organization fully, the /disks folder shows that.

And the icons, ug. Oh well icons can be changed.

I'll stick with Mandrake until something I like better comes along.

I think they should release thier new varient of KDE to the public domain though, some people will use it; wait, don't they have to under KDE's license?
