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.

Any Support for Other Languages?

Thanks for the review, Eugenia. Would you mind commenting on Xandros' support for other languages? KDE allows you to configure, of course, but I'm wondering if Xandros stripped that out. I notice all the screenshots are in English.

This is the distro I'm most interested in buying for my mother-in-law. The windows-like environment will be good for her because she recognizes it, and I see Xandros has put a lot of effort into useability. None of that is good to me if I can't configure all the apps to run in Spanish though. And even if KDE programs can do it, can Mozilla?

Thanks for your comments.
