Reviews
-s

I just received my boxed set of Xandros Desktop Premium Home Edition. The box was heavy. I thought to myself, "the box is heavy!" That's because it contains not only the sealed packet of 3 cds, but also a quick start guide and a rather thick User Guide. I beta tested an early early version of Xandros years ago, so my memory of it has all but faded. I do recall that at that time, it wiped out my entire disk. I'm hoping it has a partitioner this time. A little older and wiser now, I thought I could avoid catastrophe even if it doesn't. So, how did it go?

Creating Desktop Symphony

Filed under
Linux

Free/Open Source Software has always been about innovation. We have come from resolving dependencies to unique point-and-click package management, from text-based installations to graphical ones that are easy to follow, from a lack of desktop-oriented applications to a surplus.
