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: Any Support for Other Languages?

What's the problem ? You just need to do like with any other Debian distribution :

1. su - && apt-get install locales-es
2. logout
3. echo -en "export LANG='es_ES'nexport LC_ALL='es_ES'n" >> ~/.bashrc
4. . ~/.bashrc # to avoid logging out and back in.

And you're all set. For mozilla, I don't know about the spanish locales, but I remember there is a mozilla-locales-fr package, so there should be a spanish one, too. After apt-getting it, you just need to go in Mozilla's preferences dialog to change your language. No big deal (that's to say, if you're already a Linux geek. I suppose it would be deemed inacceptable for a novice user but too many distros -- hello, Lycoris ! -- assume that the USA are the only country in the whole world)...
