Xandros linux 1.0
Xandros 1.0 has been released.
Have heard some good things about it BUT @$99 I'll think I'll wait for a few more reviews.

That review is actually a really informative review.
If it lives up to what it says, thats a very good price tag!
(Comes with Crossover Office and plugin, thats $40 right there!)
Using that Office and IE (Eventhough I have no clue why you would want it there) ran flawlessly according to this reviewer.
While this distro is aimed at the business desktop user/new linux user, I think it gets it's job done quite well. Like the review said, this is what Lindows should have been.
JkrohnSignatures blow hard
If your signature contains an ad of any kind, congratulations, you're on my ignore list.

...now let me get this straight, I am going to pay $99 for a Linux distribution with a EULA that is almost as restrictive as Microsoft just because it includes crossover plugins that allow it to run SOME Windows programs almost as well as Windows, when I could get actual Windows for about the same price if I purchase a hard drive or motherbaord.....
Windows software for Windows, Linux software for Linux ...sounds better to me.
-&BTW -I don't mind paying $99 for a good box of Linux with a less restrictive EULA.
