“Today, Xandros has released their latest operating system, the Xandros Desktop OS – Business Edition. Though this release doesn’t really differ much from their previous Deluxe 2.0 product, I felt that the features introduced by this version were significant enough to warrant a few words on this new product.” Read the review at MadPenguin.
Xandros Gets Down to Business
2004-03-16 Oracle and SUN 1 Comment
I was one of the beta testers for Xandros 2, and one of the first betas dealt with the ability to do both NT4 and AD logins. I was quite pleased with Xandros putting this in; but one thing stopped me from using it.
When I wasn’t logged into the domain (tested on a laptop), I could only use the local user account; otherwise the domain account would freeze or lockup.
Have they made it possible to login using the domain account to cached credentials, when you aren’t connected?
Using 2 profiles was what prompted me to not use this in my network. Otherwise I think it’s a well rounded product.
