Good news that Xandros has released an ‘Open Circulation Edition‘ version of its Linux OS for free download (interestingly via BitTorrent). I suspect that Xandros is the Linux Version Most Likely To Tempt Windows Users in 2004. It looks great, installs in a trice, works with just about all hardware and really ‘feels’ like a consumer friendly O/S.
‘The Open Circulation Edition is a limited version of Xandros Desktop OS that can be download [sic] at no charge and freely distributed to others. It is strictly for non-commercial use, and no e-mail installation support is included…It includes all the easy-to-use features of the Xandros Desktop OS…including four-click install with automatic disk partitioning, industry-leading hardware detection and configuration, seamless file and print sharing on Windows networks, and drag-and-drop CD burning in Xandros File Manager.’
