This review will be taking a look at Xandros’ Desktop OS Version 3 Business Edition. Xandros touts this OS as “the secure, easy-to-use, and compatible alternative to Windows for any size organization.” Right from the start it is made clear that this OS is an alternative to Windows and it does not try to hide that fact that it was designed to be a Linux distro for XP users. This means a focus on ease of use and Windows compatibility but with the unique advantages of Linux. As a long time Windows user, who is forced to use XP on a daily basis, I really appreciated Xandros’ approach to Linux-Windows integration and just how easy they made the transition from one operating system to the other.
