Xandros Linux 3.0 Is Worth Checking Out

I discovered an excellent review on OS News covering Xandros Linux 3.0.

About the only thing I don't like about the distubution is the tight usage of proprietary technology blended with GNU / Free Software. It's more of an idealogical reaction than anything else, and from a fit-and-finish standpoint Xandros is a gorgeous, slick, tasty temptation I contemplated over Mepis (my current Linux flavor of choice - notwithstanding their sad looking website).

Should you ever tire of Windows borne infectious diseases (spam, trojans, spyware, malware, etc), but would like to retain the ability to run some of the more popular Windows-based applications - Xandros is worth a look.
