Xandros "It's been a while since I looked at Xandros. True to form, it has remained one of the easiest to use and flat out slickest Linux distributions available. This version of Xandros focuses on the 'digital lifestyle' and includes wireless network profiles, a music manager with iPod and MP3 support, photo manager, video players and internet telephone via Skype, among other things. This version also provides good security tools such as a built-in firewall and anti-virus."

Last October I shelled out $76 w/tax & shipping for Mandriva PowerPack 2006, and I'm pleased with what I got.

The real advantage of free software isn't that you can avoid paying. It's that you're free to inspect the source code to see how to make your application run better. You're free to replace your motherboard without begging Microsoft's permission to use the same license for the same machine.

The point is not to subsidise a business that as all companies solely exists to make money - from free and open source software in this case.
Surely not when there are so many great alternatives out there made by people who care about what they do without even getting paid.
