Pensei que o papo de Linux no desktop ainda ia demorar um pouco prá pegar. Que bom que me enganei. Saca só que puta avanço (pro mundo corporativo), chamado Xandros:

The OS is an evolution of Corel Corp.'s Debian-based distribution, acquired in August 2001, and the company is one of the few Linux distributors with the desktop as their primary focus. Unlike the consumer-oriented Linspire (formerly Lindows), the Xandros Desktop OS is made to work with Windows networks, supporting Windows network file sharing, network authentication on Windows NT Primary Domain Controllers and Active Directory networks, NT log-on scripts, SAP and Citrix thin clients and IBM Terminal Emulators.

Version 2.5 adds the month-old CrossOver Office 3.0.1, which allows it to run Windows applications by integrating parts of the Windows API directly into Linux. Supported applications include Lotus Notes 6.5.1, Microsoft Project 2000/2002, and Microsoft Outlook XP, Xandros said.

Current Xandros users can upgrade over the company's update system. For additional Windows compatibility, the software includes a trial version of NetTravere's Win4Lin 5.0, which runs Windows 98SE or Windows ME as a virtual machine in Linux.

The new OS is based on Linux kernel 2.4.24 and includes version 1.6 of the Mozilla communications suite, as well as Sun's StarOffice 7 office suite, including support. StarOffice is compatible with Microsoft file formats.

Xandros is targeting desktop-centric businesses such as financial or insurance firms, though industry observers say the software may be best suited for smaller businesses, because of the greater technical support resources of larger competitors such as Red Hat Inc. and Novell Inc. "The Xandros Desktop OS excels in seamless network integration and cross-platform compatibility," said Xandros chairman and CTO Dr. Frederick H. Berenstein. "Xandros has transformed the Linux desktop from a visionary future to a prudent reality for corporate IT planners."
