It's a bit like the Sun licence, where one paragraph says "You can do what you want" and another says "Oh no you can't!" Mad

It is difficult to stick with one distro. But, there does come a time when you suddenly install one and you suddenly realise that,yes, this is the one for me. I had that happen when I put SuSE 9.1 on a drive on my old PC. I won the full set including manuals so I was at an advantage then but there are some very good off the shelf books around for many distros.

You mentioned Ubuntu and were rather nonplussed by it? Have you taken a look at Kubuntu? It's Debian like Ubuntu but instead of the Gnome desktop it has KDE, hence the 'K'ubuntu Wink Now, I liked Ubuntu but wasn't enraptured enough for it to make me think I wanted to move to it from SuSE. I'm not a Gnome fan, which doesn't mean I hate it or anything as I do quite like it I simply prefer KDE. Kubuntu I like a lot and could happily use it in a productive environment.

To get back on topic.... Xandros. I presume a deal must have been done with Linux User and Developer then because they carried Xandros on one of their cover disks I think it was last month?

Which means you can if you ask them Wink *pokes you in direction of their email address*

[Edit]
Seems i was on page 2 thinking it was page 3, that was in reply to the Xandros post about proir consent.

So it's just a case of LXF asking Xandros if they can include it on a DVD. Ok, what about it then LXF? If they say no fine. This is a forum thread asking about Xandros after all, even though it seems to have forked onto other stuff Smile

After having to fiddle to no avail in pursuit of a dial-up connection with Mandriva and SUSE 9.2 gave Xandros a whirl and it was delightful.

I damned near collapsed in a state of euphoria at its ease of installing and set-up.

Here's a fair resemblance of self after the install:





Used the Gimp to process the screen-capture.
