 XandrosOS: User-Friendly to a Fault

The Register reviews XandrosOS Linux.

"Xandros wisely includes Crossover Office, an emulator enabling one to install and use Microsoft Office on Linux. This is good for Excel and Word, but the idea of using MS Outlook, even on Linux, concerns me from a security point of view. It would be wise for Xandros to include Ximian Evolution, which is safer than Outlook, looks like it, and works just as well, and encourage users to chuck Outlook in favor of it."
