If you are wondering what Xandros is the best place to go would
probably be www.xandros.com.
Xandros is what Corel Linux haves become. After microsoft purchased a
large share of Corel, Corel stopped the production of Corel Linux.
After microsoft sold their shares of Corel, Corel sold Corel Linux to
another Canadian Company who now produces the distribution under the
name of Xandros.
If you are asking about opinions of Xandros. I find it to be the most
graphically pleasing and easy installation of any operating system. I
also find the OS is very easy to use, epically software installs, and
haves good eye candy. Also, if you are Canadian, it is a bonus that it
is a Canadian distribution.
The cons would be that it is considerably proprietary, and when I
tested it, it did not have a very good selection of software to install
through its software manager; but it was good at installing proprietary
software. Also, I don't think it haves a very large community, at
least nothing like Kubuntu, that can help and support the system for
free. I think most of the support comes through the company with a fee.
