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.

re: KDE

Question to all complaining about the changes to KDE:

Do you modify your desktop to your liking, or do you leave it exactly the way the KDE package maintainers have the default set to?

All Xandros has done is modify the desktop to make it familiar to their target audience. KDE is NOT MS, so their license does not restrict 3rd parties from modifying the desktop.

That's one of the benefits/downsides to OSS. You guys can't have your kake and eat it to? :-)
