[News] Better XP Than Windows XP: GNU/Linux

Hash: SHA1

Linux incognito part two: Windows XP

,----[ Quote ]
| One is XPde, whose name simply means “XP Desktop Environment, and the second 
| is LXP for “Look WinXP.” 
| Both projects state their design goals are, as we’ve anticipated, to make it 
| easier for Windows XP users to use a Linux box. 
| Perhaps if MSI had adopted one of these they wouldn’t have experienced such a 
| high return rate on their Linux based Wind netbooks. 



Windows Now Open Source

| The news is here, today 'LinuxTreat' in association with other open-source
| developer had released some flavor of Windows for free (you may also download
| the source code).



Linux That Looks Like Windows: Bad!

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion: Linux already has excellent mainstream desktop environments
| which have a unique look and feel which differs from that of Windows.
| That's not a bad thing: Linux doesn't need to look like Windows. If a
| user wants to make their Linux distro look like the OS they left
| behind, that's perfectly fine - all they need to do is install
| xpde or LXP. However, what we cannot do is mimic Windows'
| interface, as that would destroy one of the Linux desktop's
| greatest advantages - its beauty, difference, innovation and
| ease of use.


Linux XP Desktop: A Windows face on an old Linux base

,----[ Quote ]
| Unlike Linspire and Xandros, which are both based on Debian, Linux XP is
| derived from Fedora. It runs an extensively modified version of GNOME to
| create an environment a Windows user should be comfortable with. Its
| manifesto claims that Linux XP is not a "cheap copycat product" but rather
| a mature and stable "ready-to-migrate desktop system." This I had to see.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
