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.

what a buncha crap

this thing not only looks ugly, but it looks like winblows, and something that has annoyed me is this lust to be like bill.
wtf? I understand oses wanting windows compatibility, but why make them JUST LIKE windows? it's stupid
having a complete windows look and feel is annoying, becuase most people wanna go with something different, and you dont wanna a lot of winkiddies screaming "l00k at m3!!11 i am teh l33t hax0r!1!!"
leave windows to the kiddies.. leave linux to the pros. (translation: windows for the dumbasses who have ruined the internet with ASL!!! and shit, Linux for us true computer techies)
that's my opinion.
of course you do want to attract new peeps to linux.. but dont give them windows...give them linux.
