The latest blast of great distros continues with Xandros Desktop. Xandros is another debian based distro, geared toward the desktop and promising good Windows compatibility. Our initial impression of Xandros is very positive. It lives up to a lot of its potential, with a few drawbacks.

Xandros comes on one CD with a fairly thick manual (more than 200 pages) and is priced at $99 . We don't usually bother with manuals but new users will appreciate having this documentation at their fingertips. It's written in a clear, easy-to-read manner, covers a lot of topics and will be very helpful to novices coming over to Linux from Windows. We wish every desktop-oriented distros came with similar in-depth documentation.
