Xandros 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.

"support of not domain and AD authentication, but logon scripts, and group policy profiles, as well. The distribution also supports writing to Microsoft's NTFS partitions, and integration with Microsoft Exchange email and groupware"

I know of another system that can do the same pretty well, it is call Windows!

Seriously, I do not get the point about this Business Edition ...

The point is that if you have a Windows server network but tired of Viruses, Spyware and high prices then come to us and we give you a lot of the same features, stable Linux platform, and Active directory support (Which most versions of Linux don't provide out the box)

I really like their server, it's the first version so it needs a little work, but you can give it to almost anyone who is used to working with Windows 2003 and it can be a pretty good replacement.
