Fedora 7 test 4 review

,----[ Quote ]
| The bottom line is Fedora doesn't give a reason to install it over
| other distros. Almost all linuxes are becoming the same. But one
| good thing is that it is fast even on low memory though the desktop
| effects may not work. So if you are a fedora fan you can go for it,
| otherwise be happy with Ubuntu or Suse whatever you are using.
| Theres nothing new here.

| Let's not forget, either, Fedora sticks to a fairly rigid policy
| regarding licenses: if it doesn't qualify as Free or Open Source
| then it doesn?t get included in the distribution.

Xandros Desktop Professional [Review]

,----[ Quote ]
| This is actually a good question, especially for an organization
| looking for a cost-effective solution to their software licenses.
| At USD $99, the package is actually good, not to mention that you
| have access to CrossOver Office which is a solid offering by
| itself. However, the Xandros Desktop license only allows unlimited
| installations to home computers plus one commercial-use computer. For
| home users looking for a simple desktop environment that is
| commercially supported, this is actually a good deal but businesses
| might look elsewhere or contact Xandros directly for other possible
| license arrangements. Surprisingly, even the free Open Circulation
| version of Xandros desktop allows business use only if you are a
| software developer.
| If not for its strict licensing terms, Xandros Desktop Professional
| is a good choice if you are looking for a stable system with an
| emphasis on Windows - Linux integration. The overall visual design
| of the desktop leaves a lot to be desired but can be easily
| remedied with a few tweaks.
