    Yuck! Linux XP… I don’t like it at all. If I wanted to use a Linux distro that looks like Windows XP I would use Famelix.
    But I don’d want it, of course :-p
    I’m starting to love the brown…

    “just like with Apache, or Samba, or CUPS.”

    Um, I don’t know what other people’s experience with these products is but this reads like the four horsemen of the apocalypse of the open-source world. (OK add RPM). I’ve always had an absolute mission trying to configure these tools to do just the basics. While they work incredibly well when set up I’d drop them in an instant for a more user-friendly system.

  4. Apache is a particularly bad example, given that on Debianesque operating systems every web app is rocket science to configure. Samba is a piece of just-works-click-OK cake by comparison.
