3-0 out of 5 stars Easy to use with innovative features but not for power-users
Pros: Rock solid Debian base, a lot of clever applications, very easy to use, installation is all automatic, comes with excellent documentation, provides great media support and includes Codeweaver (Deluxe version only), Apache and FTP server.

Cons: Stripped down version of KDE, root acccount "disabled", only available in English, Linspire-style database of free software that you got to pay for. Default destop theme and fonts of debatable taste.

I had been waiting for a while to test the new version of Xandros, the Deluxe edition 3 that is. Critics have been raving about it, maybe my expectations were a bit too high but it left me with a bittersweet after taste.

Overall, Xandros does a very good job of making this distro as user's friendly as can be. Simple to use but not simplistic. Some menus and commands are cleverly designed. The Xandros File Manager allows you to access all your drives including your Windows partition and Network drives. Any Linux distro can do that. What's clever is to have putall of it under the same folder.

The Xandros networks connects you to the Xandros database of software programs, many of them would normally be installed automatically, but can be downloaded sometimes for free, sometimes for a fee. Installation is as easy as can be.

Unfortunately what this comes down to is a stripped down version of KDE and the need to access a database instead of installing everything from CD's as other distros would provide you with.

The root (super user) account has been "disabled". So if you don't know anything about computers you won't mess up with the core of the operating system. But say you just want to move a file (like a language file or codec file) to a program file, you would need to enter complicated unix command line instructions to do it.

Another drawbacks overlook by many reviewers is that Xandros is only available in English while many other distros like Mandriva, Ubuntu, Red Hat, Fedora Core, etc can be installed in many languages.

If you know very little about computers, are looking for a user's friendly Linux distro with many innovative features, and want to say farewell to spywares, adwares and viruses that plague too many Windows computers, this is for you.

But if you just want a basic Linux, easy to use and secure, consider Ubuntu. It is also based on Debian, includes security updates, comes with a beautiful Gnome interface, can be installed in many languages.

Linux is not compatible with the vast majority of commercial software so power-users will need to look eslewhere.

And did I mention Ubuntu doesn't cost a penny? ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Ahh the end of Domains!
Windows 2000 Server is the first major step in becoming a true business tool.

With Active Directory, you finally have a decent tool that will get rid of the cursed Network Neighborhood! I had to train the community that just because you don't see it in NN, does not mean it is not there!!!!!

You will be able to eliminate domains with the advent of Organizational Units!

A HUGE improvement is the conversion to Dynamic Domain Name Services. Now your DHCP will register the computer name in DNS.This is a god send in that if you use tools like timbuktu, you don't have to worry about what IP is in use.

The new tools and directory services greatly reduce managment.However, it is not an easy conversion to AD, plan it well and you will have little or no problems. Just install it and you might finder yourself working on it for awhile!

It is a worth while upgrade from the old NT domain structure!

1-0 out of 5 stars PRODUCT DISPLAYED AND LABELED IS NOT PRODUCT DISPLAYED
WINDOWS 2000 SERVER with five License is described as product for sale.This is NOT correct.The DISPLAY shows the WINDOWS 2000 SERVER box as the product to be purchased.Even the requirements make no metion of what is required for the product being sold.
What IS be sold is the WINDOWS CLIENT LICENSE PAK.Which comes from microsoft with a COMPLETELY diferent container than what is being sold.This is the CLIENT LICENSE PAK only no software or manuls are included.That is because the product is WINDOWS CLIENT LICENSE PAK only.PLEASE CHANGE the title and your DISPLAY of the product to WINDOWS CLIENT LICENSE PAK

5-0 out of 5 stars What a great OS!
I upgraded to this from Windows 98, and I never had experience running a server before. From the moment I put in the CD I knew I would love this OS. It is very easy to use, and within a day I had a http and ftp server running perfectly (I had no experence setting them up before). This OS is also much more stable than Win 95/98/ME. It has only crashed on me a few times in 4 months! The only bad thing about this OS is that it can not run any DOS program, so this is not the ideal OS for old skool gamers. All in all this OS is definetly worth the price.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good deal for 5-Client License!
This is great deal for 5-Client License, go for it! Or maybe go with 2000server or advanced server. Windows 2000 itself is like downgraded versionof server versions. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Striking a balance between configurability and user-friendliness, SuSE Linux Professional 7.3 stands as a good choice for someone with a little bit--but not necessarily a lot--of Linux experience. Choose this distribution if you need to provide network services to a LAN or to the Internet, want to experiment with a broad sample of the software that's available for your purposes, and don't mind a bit of skeleton showing through the veneer once in a while. This version of Linux is built with compatibility, performance, reliability, and security in mind.

New in this release: an updated Linux kernel (version 2.4.10), XFree86 windowing system (4.1.0), KDE desktop manager (2.2.1), GNOME desktop manager (1.4.1 Beta 2), and Samba server for integration with Microsoft Windows computers (2.2). These incremental upgrades present all sorts of useful features, including the Nautilus file manager, Kooka scanner support, hot partitioning of disks, and compatibility with lots of additional hardware (including television cards and, for the first time, touchscreens).

System administrators shouldn't find themselves wanting for file system support under this release. In addition to the new ext3 file system that's part of the Linux 2.4.x kernel, SuSe Linux Professional 7.3 supports the ext2, ReiserFS, FAT, NTFS, and JFS file systems. Unless you need compatibility with an established data volume in another format, you'll probably want to use ext3 (which is both backward and forward compatible with the proven ext2 file system) if you're running a server that must be available to users as much as possible.

The ext3 provides a better availability rate than ext2 because it's a journaling file system, which means it keeps records of the read and write operations it performs on its media. That's valuable because if the system shuts down unexpectedly due to a crash or power failure, the mandatory fsck integrity verification need only look at the parts of the file system that were being manipulated when the problem occurred. Because comprehensive fsck runs can be very lengthy on big ext2 volumes--and because the volumes aren't available during those runs--ext3 gives a clear benefit to server users and administrators. In another boon to reliability and speed, this edition supports RAID levels 0, 1, and 5 in software. That is, you don't need an expensive RAID controller card in your machine to enjoy the benefits of RAID under this operating system.

SuSE Linux Professional 7.3 further distinguishes itself from its competitors by including a heap of server, application, and utility software--pretty much everything available for free download on the Internet--compiled for this kernel and stored, on seven CD-ROMs as well as on a single DVD-ROM, in RPM format for easy installation. The value of the included software is in time saved, naturally, and in usage fees saved if your Internet connection has a usage quota. If you enjoy installing different software packages and putting them through their paces (or if you're a developer eager to check out the competition or verify your product's compatibility), you'll consider the software library a big bonus. A bootable floppy--something several distributions no longer include--is a considerate inclusion that makes it easier for you to install this svelte product on older computers that can't boot from their CD-ROM drives. Further, the YaST2 administration tool centralizes and simplifies configuration work.

Like other Linux distributions based on the Linux 2.4.x kernel, this release of SuSE Linux Professional 7.3 is slicker than ever, and more widely compatible with peripheral hardware. Unlike other distributions, this one ships with nearly every tool and toy you could want, and a generous 90 days of phone, fax, and Internet support for everything short of networking. Consider Red Hat Linux 7.2 Professional if user-friendliness and the ability to select from among several operating systems at boot time is truly paramount for you, but stick with SuSE if you want a strong, reliable Linux and all the trimmings. --David Wall ...

5-0 out of 5 stars SuSE is for me...
Like many others out there, I got on the Linux bandwagon to expand my knowledge and skills in the area of alternative OSes. I have tried 7 different flavors of Linux, and have landed in SuSEville. SuSE for me, is easier to use, comes with better documentation (some flavors come with virtually no documentation). But most of all, it conquers Windows 2000 Server in almost all respects. Squid (the equivalent of Proxy Server) is relatively easy to set up, and comes for free with the distribution. This will save the saavy administrator over $1000.00. Samba (which allows connectivity to Windows boxes) is also included and is easier than ever to set up with SWAT (html based configuration).

To top this all off, I have a powerhouse SuSE server, serving 7 workstations with Squid, File and Print services, and IP routing running on a Pentium 75, with 64 meg of RAM with a 2.0 Gig hard drive. This is not possible with Microsoft 2000. Linux is stable and runs well on older, slower hardware. This saves a lot of money. 7.3 also incorporates Soft-RAID technology (new in Windows 2000). This allows you to run fault tolerance in Linux without the expensive supporting hardware.

I've worked with Red Hat, Debian, Caldera, Mandrake and a few others. But since SuSE came out with version 7.1 and later, I've had few problems (most from lack of knowledge) and SuSE has been stable enough for me to recommend it to friends and customers. To top it all off, I love the games included with this version of my favorite Linux!

5-0 out of 5 stars SuSE 7.3 Professional - an excellent distribution
This is one great distribution and most likely the best buy for me this
year, very nice surprise. Expected a solid system after previous experience
with SuSE products, but this one exceeds my expectations a lot.

I already own boxed versions of 6.4 /which I used as a router-firewall for cable
connection before I purchased a real router/ and liked it, and 7.0 Pro
which I didn't like /maybe because too much beta, unfinished stuff?/ Both
included great documentation and loads of applications; the new 7.3 isn't
exception. There are 7CD-ROM's (and 1 DVD if you own DVD player) plus 5 nice
manuals included, with lots of useful info inside. I always used to like SuSE
printed manuals, tons of knowledge , and explained in fairly good style. The
installation itself /I picked the "Default with StarOffice"/ took about 30
minutes and configured most of hardware correctly /with exception of older ISA
modem, which I didn't expect to be set easily anyway - did it later manually with isapnp tools/.
So in half an hour I had system configured with network, printer & ready to use. I run install in
graphical mode and without a glitch.

Default configuration installs most common packages, I'm adding new stuff
slowly only when I need them. The packages are managed best by Yast2
configuration tool (with dependency check), very easy to use, there is older the Yast available as
well. There are so many features in this release that it's difficult to name
them all, so just a few:

1) YOU /YastOnlineUpdate/ - unlimited update tool in style of Windows Update, but no
reboots necessary
2) many various file system, incl.Ext2 & 3, jfs, ReiserFS, crypto file system
3)2 firewalls /easy to use "Personal" and advanced "SuSE firewall"/
4)KDE 2.2.1 desktop environment /stable with tons of features/
5)according to box SuSE includes 2300+ application; believe
6)XFree 4.1.0 & Sax2
...and much more.

Most important thing: everything works; fast and smooth, no lockup, no errors.
I really didn't have any problems which would require reboot, and do have the first original
installation running. Biggest problem I encountered was a partially locked up X server;
just restarted X...also, while compiling something,I run into missing libraries/errors; but this could be
just my relative inexperience; bet skilled user would be able to fix that fast.
I trust SuSE7.3 so much that I use graphical login :)

I used to have always some kind of problems with Linux, but this version is fully
functional as a desktop OS /with capabilities of server or whatever else you wish/.
Full featured GUI, with command line power. Btw, the KDE2.2 GUI looks great and offers almost
unlimited customization.

There are certain areas which need improvement, for instance more drivers (only 1 out of my 2
digital cameras are supported),also the used videocard 3d glx support has problems in Xfree4,
but the overall level of support gets much better.

Needed some advice from SuSE tech. support; got helpful answers from knowledgeable people over e-mail.Took
a few days until first response, but afterwards the reply's were fast.

I would recommend SuSE 7.3Pro to everyone /as long as you don't mind to learn stuff/; Windows is
of course much easier to use, but offers less as well, definitely when installed out of the box .

I'm only moderately skilled Linux user, so I may missed some problems other people would point out.But
personally I'm very satisfied. I don't want to go into more details, there are some good reviews around the
Internet with full depth.This is just my experience after about 3 weeks of use of this OS.
Very impressive package, love it! I use normally Win2k, but SuSE is nice alternative.

I attempted the FTP installation first and it failed repeatedly, reason unknown to me. /did it successfully before with SuSE 7.2/.
Still, for the price paid it's a total bargain. I'm going to buy next SuSE as well; this company deserves support.

The system info:

Intel Celeron 466 - Abit BM6 /BX chipset/
256MB PC-100 RAM /generic/
15GB Maxtor ATA-100 HDD on MB's UDMA33 controller (needs upgrade here)
ATI Rage Fury Pro 32MB AGP /Rage 128 Pro chipset; "Rage128PF" in SuSE HW database/; installed originally with ATI Xpert98 PCI /Rage XL chipset/
ADI 1816 ISA SB-compatible sound card
3COM 905 TX PCI NIC /network configured with DHCP running on router/
Diamond SupraExpress 336i ISA modem /not configured or recognized during install; configured later successfully/
TEAC 32x IDE CD-ROM
MS Wheel Mouse PS2
SONY Multiscan17sfII 17" monitor
HP DeskJet 932C printer /used parallel port/
Epson Photo PC650 digital camera /used ttyS0 port/

This system is not really too slow, but I wouldn't try to put SuSE 7.3 on anything much slower if planning
to use GUI in full; had 7.2 on P200MMX/128MB RAM and it crawls. Command line only system works fine on anything I believe...

1-0 out of 5 stars 7.3 half baked - 7.2 is better
I loved 7.2 of Suse, I have it installed on 3 PCs (P3 Laptop, old P1, and P4). It installed on all 3 without any problems. So when 7.3 came out I ran to the store and got it the week after it was released in the US. I cannot get 7.3 to install on the on the old P1 with out it crashing after the install. On the laptop the disk has to be fsck (scandisk for you windows users) for every re/boot, 7.3 thinks the computer crashed and the drive was not dismounted correctly. This never happens with 7.2 on the laptop. And does not occur in the P4 with 7.2 or 7.3. On the 2 that I can get 7.3 to boot the xterm forgets to clear the screen when you exit an application. This does not happen all the time but when it does you have to log out and restart X to solve the problem.

Support just stinks, they can not answer any questions and they take 2-3 weeks to get back to you and tell you that they do not know the answer. They seam to not be very interested in improving the product.

If you do a full install if 7.3 Star Office locks up when a user starts Star Office for the fist time and selects install. This happens for all new users created after the 7.3 install. I called suse support and they said Sorry your 90 days of free help has expired. I call one other time and support could not help me. 2 button mouses paste does not work in 7.3 the way it did in 7.2 My solution was to buy a new mouse for the laptop.

The way I solved the star office problem was to install 7.2. Create all the needed users. Run the office installer for each user and then upgrade to 7.3 8-( I found several other little things that work in 7.2 and just do not work in 7.3.

The 7.3 version of Suse has some very nice eye candy, but under the candy is a half baked product. If you look at most commercial software like Oracle and IBM are certified on Suse. If you look at the support matrix they say 7.2 NOT 7.3. I wonder why?

My recommendation is get 7.2 or try your luck with 8 and skip 7.3 at all cost.

5-0 out of 5 stars Good Choice
If you want to really learn how computers work and/or be able to run a system that's stable and secure, Linux and its relatives (like BSD) are the top choices currently available.

SuSE in particular is known for providing excellent documentation, lots of variety in software, and striking a decent balance between ease of use and configurability.

Personally, just knowing that my programs aren't secretly sending information about me back to their home base is more than worth needing to take a little more time to understand how the system works.

5-0 out of 5 stars Does it all
This is the only package you need to become instantly productive with linux. It includes a complete office suite (Star Office 5.2) plus the new Koffice suite and Abiword all of which can read and write MS Word and other MS Office file formats. You also get real player 8, Adobe Acrobat, Netscape 6, graphics and photo editors, email and scheduling software, cd writing software, plus some cool games. The setup is really easy and it can coexist with all versions of Windows. It also has built-in journaling file systems so power failures won't damage your harddrive, and it has strong encryption which you can enable for your file system to secure you data. Enable it with a checkbox during install.

As for upkeep, SuSE Online Update works from your desktop. It will update your system over the Internet and is as easy as Windows Update. You can run this periodically to download security and program updates or you can use it to update your entire system for free when the next version of SuSE Linux is released. It couldn't be simpler.

The box contains 7 cd's and 1 dvd. The dvd install is awesome because you never have to swap cd's. When you use the "add and remove software" module, it can find any software you need on the dvd. With the dvd, I've never had to use the cd's. I've used all the leading distros. SuSE is the most complete and the documentation is the best. You can't go wrong with this one. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Good but save your money
Okay maybe if your connection is slow or you don't have access to broadband you can buy this CD,but if not why bother?
OpenOffice.org is freely available online as is Firefox.
I use and love both so don't get me wrong here,but the price is a little too much but then again it goes to the developers.
Ooo is a great alternative to Microsoft Office and even Star Office.It does everything the same for free! I often do my homework and essays with Ooo Writer. And Firefox is what I am using to write this very review!It's one of the best Mozilla-based browsers besides the Mozilla Suite/Netscape 7 itself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Office and FireFox, wonderful software, excellent value
Open Office reads and writes in MS Office 97/2000/XP formats for Word, Excel and PowerPoint and can export documents to PDF format.
One of the best advantages is inexpensive upgradability.I purchased Office 95 ($400+ dollars) in 1996.When Office 97 came out, my Office 95 software would not open office 97 formatted documents.I toughed it out till I purchased Office 2000 ($500+ dollars) now Office XP and 2003 have came out (do we see a pattern here)?I suspect that it will be much less expensive to buy a $30 upgrade to Open Office to read and writedocuments created by upcoming versions of Micro$oft Office.
FireFox: "ad ware" resistant, pop up blocker and tabbed browsing... love it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great products, great price, great source!
Open Office and Firefox are two of the very best of their kind.Both give users the ability to work with the same files, websites and so on that they're used to, without the worries of bad macros, spyware, and other problems associated with the proprietary products these replace.Better yet, they're both faster, more powerful, and more up-to-date than those old dinosaurs.Perhaps best of all, these programs look and operate the same on Windows, Mac, Linux and other platforms, making it much easier if you or your family needs the flexibility.

The fact you can buy this set for a tiny fraction of the cost of just the Office suite it replaces is almost secondary to all the other features -- Open Office would be tough competition for Microsoft even if it cost the same as MS Office.

Linspire, the publisher of this collection, is highly respected for making open-source software widely accessible; if you like Open Office and Firefox, their Linspire Linux is among the best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Open Source Packaged and Marketed as It Deserves
OpenOffice.org and Firefox are both fantastic products lacking one simple ingredient. Despite their technical merits, the marketing efforts for these products have not been impressive... until now.

With Oooff, that has all changed. The products are finally sold next to other respected name brands on store shelves and through online retailers, like Amazon.com. Oooff is expanding the distribution channel of these open source products. Oooff will expose computer users that pay large sums for Microsoft Office and use the vulnerable, dull and underpowered Internet Explorer to the powerful alternatives they didn't know existed. Without a doubt, making open source software accessible is the first step in restoring a healthy and competitive software industry.

Oooff is a great idea and contains excellent products. This is a good buy and will give you the comfort of knowing that by purchasing this product,OpenOffice.org and Firefox will have an even brighter future.

Amazon.com Review

Even the most die-hard Mac user needs to use a Windows-based PC once in a while; there's just no getting around it. Short of buying a second computer, Connectix Virtual PC 5.0 is the ideal solution. This powerful emulation engine turns any Mac into a Windows PC, if only for the time that it's running, without the need for additional hardware. It also takes advantage of existing hardware, like tablets, mice, printers, and hard drives, and uses your existing network connections for connecting to the Internet. Most remarkable of all, it runs as if it were a Mac application, alongside other Mac apps, supporting full copy-and-paste and file-sharing functionality.

Virtual PC 5.0 offers full Mac OS X compatibility, supporting multiprocessor Macs, Windows XP Home and XP Professional, the ability to share removable media drives, an improved user interface, and other enhancements. Virtual PC also supports the installation of multiple guest operating systems, such as Windows 98, Windows 2000, and even Linux.

Because this is a software-only emulation package, its performance is directly tied to the speed of your machine. In our testing, we installed Virtual PC 5.0 on both a 400 MHz G3 PowerBook (Pizmo) with 640 MB RAM, and a 500 MHz dual-processor G4 with 1.5 GB RAM. Both machines were running OS X 10.1.4. As one would expect, Virtual PC 5.0 on the PowerBook was substantially slower, while the dual-processor G4 was fairly snappy. Virtual PC 5.0 itself performed as advertised, though, making this an ideal solution for someone who occasionally needs Windows compatibility.

Would we want to work full-time on this kind of Windows machine? No. But if we need to translate a document or test a Web site on the Windows version of Netscape, or perform some other Windows-specific task, this approach sure beats buying and maintaining additional hardware (assuming the hardware you've got has the necessary horsepower). --Mike Caputo ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Software I mean Great Great Great SOFTWARE.
I had an macintosh computer for 1 year running mac os 9. I had Roadrunner as for the internet. And when I purchased This Great Software Windows for MAC it was cool. Only thing was it was slow i mean very slow but i got a long with it ITS LIFE. WHEN YOU HAVE ROADRUNNER YOU HAVE IT AND IT HELPS OUT ALOT TOO

THIS IS GREAT GREAT SOFTWARE YOU SHOULD BUY IN MY OPINION ... COOL ... SOFTWARE

4-0 out of 5 stars Virtual PC 5.0 Windows XP
I have an "old" Power Mac G4 dual 1 GHZ processor with 1.5G of RAM installed. I am running the software under OSX. I do not believe that the OS 9 version supports dual processors.
The installation was a bit rough. I had to install and uninstall two times. The upgrade, v 5.04 is supposed to make this easier. I don't think you can install the update until you install the original version so any fixes seem useless if you first have to jump the install hurdle before updating.
Once things booted up, performance has been great. I would hesitate to wonder how well it would work with a slower processor. This version recognizes both processors.
I echo the comments about documentation. Connectix assumes too much. The second CD is used if you are prompted to insert your Windows CD. I guess it has a bunch of drivers.
I am waiting for a response from technical support regarding neccessity of using a firewall and antivirus. I run NIS on both the Mac and the virtual XP PC. I think it is needed, but NIS definitely bogs down the app. Still acceptable, but not as jawbreaking fast as the original install.
Another sore point I have with Connectix is technical support. You get one free incident response and then you are charged[...]after that. So my inability to initially install burned my response up and that response also applied to my email request.
They do have a forum, but I would have hoped for a little more support, maybe 30 days.
I would definitely respect the minimum system requirements listed. I am near the top as far as Mac performance and would wonder how well it would work with a G3 or a 500 MHZ G4.

1-0 out of 5 stars Lousy piece of software!!!! BEWARE!!!
I am a recent Mac convert. I have used Windows machines for many, many years. When I bought my IMac, I had heard about this program and was very excited...just think the best of both worlds, OS X and Windows XP Home. I plunked down my hard-earned ... and boy am I disappointed. THIS SOFTWARE IS BEYOND SLOW!!!! The documentation is lacking, the installation took several hours, and I now remember why I switched to a Mac in the first place. Believe me when I say, PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS SOFTWARE!!!! YOU WILL REGRET IT IF YOU DO. IT IS MUCH, MUCH TOO SLOW TO BE OF ANY USE.

1-0 out of 5 stars Waste of time and money
I bought this program to run one Windows program for a Garmin GPS receiver. I have a newer model Imac with 1 gig of memory, so it's not short of resources. I was completely frustrated and finally gave up. To begin with, Connectix' documentation is very bad. You get to the installation instructions about 3/4ths of the way through the manual. They are incomplete and unclear. The onscreen instructions are just as bad: they don't even tell you to insert the second of the discs at the appropriate time. It was only after hours of trying things that I finally got Windows XP to run at all. And that's when I discovered how slowly it runs. I mean crawling, not walking, slow. It took forever to draw a map, print it, etc. I gave up; just loaded the map program on the wife's pc. You do the same and you'll save the money and effort. What a waste of both.
