"In this review I'll be focusing on just the Open Desktop and Open Workstation, as that'll be the two primary areas that most end users will worry about. As far as the server is concerned, most users who would put it to use for such a thing already know what they're looking for and could more easily determine it's value on their own since their needs would vary between people and companies.

"The primary difference between the two that I'll be covering is the list of applications. Open Desktop is setup with the home user in mind, while Open Workstation is setup with the business user in mind. The Open Desktop system comes on a single CD and weighs in around 685mb, while the Open Workstation weights in at a hefty 1.4gb and comes on a DVD.

"The disparity in sizes immediately brings to light the differences in their uses. But aside from the general focus of use, and the selection of included applications, they're both essentially just remastered versions of Xubuntu that have been customized with different uses in mind, a slight change in eyecandy and some modifications to the general layout."
