Odd... I was getting the same thing with Microsoft Passport trying to download Expression Web Designer to test on ubuntu under crossover.

but back on tpic...

My biggest issue with Xandros is the fact that they use their XFN (Not the XFN you're used to... XandrOS File Manager) instead of Konqueror. When I used it, it just felt like a crippled version of Konq. It's like the false familiarity thing everyone talks about with DEs that look like Windows but are different enough to be annoying and harder to use.

In light of this, I tried to upgrade to a newer version of KDE by adding my Debian repos to my sources.list ... in short.... it didn't work. I ended up with a thoroughly broken DE... and the graphical login was gone because for some reason KDM and whatever XandrOS uses aren't interchangeable.

On the other hand... things might be different now? It's been about 2 years. I switched to Debian, which I liked very much, then found Kubuntu... like Debian but more stuff works out of the box, and never went back.
