Not bad enough that you favor a non-free distro and would recommend it to others, but you move from one deal signer to another. You ARE a glutton for punishment, aren't you? Xandros autographed on the line before the Lin/Freedows guys did.

At this point, I'm only exploring Linux. And Xandros is a nice, finished distro.

I'm not Anti-Microsoft, being that my main box is a Windows XP Box.

I'm Platform agnostic, running an iMac G5 alongside a Dell Dimension E510, alongside an LNW-80 and many other systems.

I was excited about Linspire becoming a full featured, desktop Linux distro. Except, it seems they've taken several wrong turns in the past year.

As for Xandros... It's better for me than a distro that doesn't have a large company behind it.

The main thing I dislike about Ubuntu (though I have it here...) is that it's brown. I hate brown. I like Blue.
