 Xandros Surfside Linux Edition

Nice review of Xandros Surfside Linux.

"A friend, "a virus-riddled, we-don'-need-no-steenkin'-firewall, smartass friend” who spends more time cleaning and reformatting than he does actually using his computer, asked me to help him set up a new system. The main criteria was that the system had to be bulletproof. The main uses for the system were to be e-mail, web browsing, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and a little bit of word processing. Internet connectivity had to include a wireless option. At first, I resisted the challenge. This particular friend had previously demonstrated his propensity for being a pest. But then, unbidden and unforeseen, a timely review package arrived in the mail. So I called the man and said one word: "Linux!" After he stopped laughing and picked himself up off the floor, I told him that the only way I was going to help him was with a Linux system. The writing was on the wall. It was time for a change."
