    I have tried fifteen or twenty linux programs and I finally found one that I think has the potential to replace windows as the primary os. No real reason for this post except that I am very happy with this new os. I won't mention the name of it unless someone ask's because I don't want it to look like spam.

    Well, of course you made me curious... I'm in the process of building my gentoo box. Could be a nice system, if only it would boot the root partition and network card.
    I'll be installing Suse (glad Novell stepped in to defend linux against commercialisation by a certain party).
    Are your efforts comparable (I'm solliciting for your answer, so no spam in my opinion :p)

    I would be interested in what OS and why you like it.
    I have looked at a couple and find I'm the old dog that has a very hard time learning new tricks. :rolleyes:

    I installed xandros 2.0 and it is just as slick as ice on ice. It reconized all of my hardware and mounted all removable disc drives all automatically. I didn't even have to set up my internet connection, it found my router and configured it auto. I was on the net before I could open the browser. It has a download facility called xandros networks you can download any software you want free of charge. It installs the software very fast and clean. It has a lot of features and it works very well and easy. I believe it is good for a knowledgable linux user or a newbie. Over all I like it a lot. :D

    There are a few things in xp I like but you can find free open source apps that will usually do the job.

    Xandros is nice, but I just installed Suse 9, no need to move over :)

    I also have suse and I liked it really well but I did like xandros but that is just personal preference. I guess that is why there are so many distros. There are so many different likes. ;)
