Yes, the more I look about it online, the more Lindows kept popping up.
It's a shame that Lindows started before anybody else with a
Debian-based distro for the desktop and they have not got anything as
sophisticated and well done as Xandros has. Xandros has definitely blown
my mind ... and made me think about a plethora of things that are needed
for Debian-Desktop to actually take off... Dying to talk on that
"meeting" about these and other things.
Talking about that meeting, no one has said anything about it. It'll be
on Sunday 29th right?
