Xandros Releases Open Circulation Edition of Easy-to-Use Linux Desktop Operating System
NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/09/2004 -- Xandros, the leading developer of easy-to-use Linux solutions, today announced the release of an Open Circulation Edition of the Xandros Desktop Operating System (OS). The Xandros Open Circulation OS can be downloaded at no charge from the Xandros web site. Individuals can install the software for their personal use and pass it on to their friends through download mirror sites or by copying the installation CD.
"We want the Open Circulation version of the Xandros desktop to replicate like a virus," said Dr. Frederick H. Berenstein, Xandros Chairman and CTO. "Open computing is coming of age, and every desktop user should know that there's a full-featured Windows alternative out there, and they're going to love it!"
"Many desktop users who toy with the idea of ditching Microsoft are not aware that switching to Linux means getting the best of both worlds," adds Ming Poon, Xandros VP for software development. "They have a more stable OS, free of all the Windows viruses out there, and can still access all their Windows files and office documents. They also find out that the Xandros File Manager has an integrated CD Writer that is even simpler to use and yet more powerful than the one that comes with XP."
The Open Circulation Edition of the Xandros Desktop OS provides a secure, stable Windows replacement with all the features the great majority of users need, including an office suite, web browsing, e-mail, and multimedia facilities. Other outstanding Xandros benefits include:
