  1. Doesnt it bother you that Xandros is a toy OS ?

    I run a very heterogenous ship here - Win7, Ubuntu, a Mac mini,
    several dual boot XP/2000 or XP/Vista, an NLSU running busybox and so
    forth. All linux shop at work thankfully, and Xen virtualised (any
    Unix) on EC2 platforms.

    My point if you need it spelling out is an OS is mostly just an OS -
    with the right tools, the lines blur in terms of fitness for purpose.

    I wouldn't expect a newbie to handle a grown up Linux or BSD (aka OSX)
    variant, but with the appropriate GUI layers (eg xandros) relatively
    complicated hardware can become usable by people at all levels of
    accomplishment (think OLPC and the ilk).

    It's horses for courses, what might fit you would not fit many people.
