Oracle and SUN On the day after Thanksgiving, Xandros will be giving business Linux users an early holiday present: Xandros Desktop Professional version 4.0. This new version of this well-regarded Debian-based desktop is designed to work in both Linux- and Windows-based office networks. It comes ready for use on NT domain, Active Directory, and Linux/Unix NIS-based LANs. This new version also comes with a fancy 3D effect desktop. Expect a review here on OSNews soon.

It comes ready for use on NT domain, AD (Active Directory), and Linux/Unix NIS (Network Information Service)-based LANs.

I feel like I'm starting to sound like a broken record, but can we stop worrying about NIS and start using Kerberos/LDAP on our Linux networks? It's the 21st century for crying out loud!

xDMS looks incredibly useful though.
