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.

How are they still around?

I've never seen anyone use Xandros, and they're definitely a for-profit company, and they've been around for quite a while, so they must have some sort of income. Does anyone know if they're actually selling their Linux distro to anyone? Or are they still living off VC money?

Anyone seen any Xandros deployments anywhere?

I've purchased every version since 1.0. It's not as slick looking as Ubuntu but it's always worked very well for me.

Slightly off topic then, but why would you buy a distro like Xandros when Ubuntu is around for free... I've tried Ubuntu and it does seem very intuitive, polished and working well.


Just thinking the same as the other reader - what does Xandros live off?
