Xandros: An Excellent Desktop Replacement
Xandros: An Excellent Desktop Replacement

Like many geeks, I find myself as the default support person for my family's computers.

How this came to be is a mystery since I rarely, if ever, run any of the same programs as the rest of my family. Months ago I spent the better part of two evenings removing adware, spyware, malware, worms, and viruses from my parents' computer which was running Microsoft Windows XP Professional. During the course of this first infection I removed McAfee firewalling and other bits (which obviously didn't prevent the problem) and I purchased Norton Antivirus and firewall for the computer.

Soon after repairing the operating system, I was again informed that the computer was "acting up" and displaying the same symptoms as before. With some level of frustration I again set about repairing the computer. However, this time it was going to be different. It became clear after this second infection that the root cause of the problem wasn't the user but rather the operating system itself. However, this time I wasn't simply going to clean Windows again only to have it become infected in another week.

I confirmed the new operating system approach with my parents who made it clear that they didn't care what the interface looked like as long as the computer worked for their needs. I then set out on an adventure to find an appropriate operating system to fulfill this need.

The criteria were simple: Find an OS that has adequate security protections such as separation of user versus system processes, a real firewall, and some level of stability. With those criteria, it was obvious that Microsoft Windows was not an option. Even if there was some level of stability with Windows XP, the security criteria of separation between user and system is not met, nor is there an adequate firewall. Although Windows XP Service Pack 2 does include an improved firewall, the firewall can be disabled too easily thus making it completely useless.

I looked at a few different Linux-based desktop-oriented operating systems and finally settled on Xandros. Xandros is based on Debian Linux which made it a logical choice for someone who runs Debian already. Since Xandros is Debian-based I knew that I would be intimately familiar with the underlying architecture and software such as apt. This feature also enables the rich set of software available with Debian to be installed easily and seamlessly in Xandros.

Looking at Xandros

For this computer I used the free (as in cost) version of Xandros available as a BitTorrent download. This version of Xandros, called Open Circulation Edition, includes everything that my parents need to use their computer including the Opera Web browser and OpenOffice. Other versions of Xandros include things like CrossOver Office, additional Windows networking components, and other items important for a power-user or business desktop. Xandros also provides many interface improvements and tools to make desktop management easy.

Installation was very easy. Xandros claims a 4-step installation, though truthfully I wasn't counting. I took the 'Custom' route to installation, so I think there were a couple additional steps involved. Installation was completely painless, which is amazing considering the number of steps involved to install any operating system along with the complexity of the task. Whatever they're paid, the software engineers behind the Xandros installer are worth more.

Once installed and booted for the first time, a wizard runs to configure some of the basics of the computer. This wizard enables each individual user to configure things like mouse orientation, printers, desktop preferences, and more. Connecting the computer to my LAN was trivial, it just worked. However, my parents use a modem to connect to the Internet since there are no good broadband providers in the area. Getting the computer to connect to the Internet was a little trickier but only because the modem in their computer is a Broadcom software-based modem. Some "Winmodems", as they are frequently called, are supported in Xandros, but it just happened that I had one that wasn't. As soon as I put a nice hardware-based USR modem into the computer connecting to the Internet was easy.

I was apprehensive with the task of getting the HP 932C printer working with Xandros. This apprehension was completely unfounded. Xandros automatically identified the printer and had drivers for it. Though the printer was identified as an HP 930C I was still impressed and changed it to the correct model by simply selecting it from the menu. The printer was then automatically configured as default for all users that I had setup on the computer. I've had problems setting up printers with both Windows and Linux in the past. I found the process of setting up the printer to be completely without challenge. It just worked. That phrase is quickly becoming a theme for my experience with Xandros.

Based on the amount of positive feedback I've heard on Opera (I used an early version many years ago), I'm sure it's a great browser. However, my preference is for Mozilla Firefox. Xandros does include the entire Mozilla suite in the personal and business versions of the desktop. Since I'm running the Open Circulation Edition I set out to download and install Firefox myself. I was surprised to see that Xandros didn't have an apt-get'able version of Firefox available but downloading it from is trivial anyway. I've setup Firefox more than a few times so I wasn't expecting any surprises here nor did I receive any. Firefox worked seamlessly in Xandros as I would've expected.

Installation of a firewall was next on the agenda. Yes, I could've thrown together any iptables script but I was curious about the typical Xandros solution. A search of the Xandros support forums (which are excellent) revealed that a program called Firestarter was a common choice. Installation of Firestarter was a matter of typing 'apt-get install firestarter'. Firestarter provides a GUI interface to creating an iptables ruleset. While it won't provide as advanced of a setup as I could get by rolling my own script, the firewall will work perfectly for a desktop computer. With the firewall enabled, an nmap run against the computer reveals no open TCP ports.

Looking back at the entire process, from the computer's initial infections to the successful deployment of Xandros, the only thing I should've done was install Xandros right away after the first encounter with Windows malware. Everyone's lives would've been easier had I done the obvious and treated the cause of the problem (Microsoft Windows) rather than the symptoms (the malware). Anyone plagued by spyware, adware, malware, viruses, worms or otherwise should take a serious look at Xandros. My mistake was to treat the symptoms rather than treating the root cause when I fixed their computer the first time. And yes, my parents are using the computer and couldn't be happier with it.

Looking Closer at Xandros

Xandros offers numerous editions of their desktop software, each aimed at a different user base. From the free download edition, multiple personal editions, and software aimed at business, there are ample choices to match your situation. The business edition includes authentication to Windows Active Directory networks for legacy support. Xandros' web site includes a comparison matrix of the four editions. Xandros support options are numerous as well, with varying levels of support for installation and post-installation tasks.

It's also possible to install Xandros onto an existing Windows computer and dual-boot, just in case you're not ready to take the huge leap. Using one of the Deluxe editions of Xandros gives the user CrossOver Office and plugin capabilities. This means that you can run Microsoft Office and some Windows plugins for web browsing as well. There are tons of games available in Xandros (and with Debian too), though many of the most popular games run only on Windows (though Doom III has been released for Linux). Soon your only use of Microsoft Windows could be as a gaming platform.

Based on this experience with Xandros I installed the Deluxe Edition of Xandros, replacing a pre-installed Windows XP laptop. Xandros detected the hardware flawlessly which is no small feat on a laptop computer. I've since tested various Windows software including Quicken and found that they work perfectly in Xandros. With the stability, security, and flexibility provided by Xandros there's no reason to run anything else.

Pros: (Too numerous to mention but I'll try)

  • Easy installation and cooperation with Windows for dual-boot, if necessary.
  • Easy-to-use desktop interface. Users shouldn't have to spend much time configuring their computer.
  • Good selection of applications included such as Opera (or Mozilla), OpenOffice, instant messaging, and more.
  • Compatibility. CodeWeavers CrossOver is a great addition and enables many Windows-only applications to run successfully if there's no Linux counterpart.
  •  Configurability. Users can, if they so choose, configure things just how they want them.
  •  Stability and standards. It's based on Linux. It's based on Debian.
  •  Security. Real separation of user to system functions and a real firewall.


  • Though I've not encountered them, I'm guessing that there are some Windows programs that won't run in CrossOver or other emulators, including games.
  •  Some Winmodems won't run, or won't run without a fight, in Xandros.

I have had issues installing Xandros 4 on several PC's. My Dell office pc SX 270 went almost perfect. One of my home boxes at the beginning of the installation it said that no hard disk were detected - funny Fedora 9 and Vista worked fine. On my 64 bit Vista PC it crased right away guess due to 64 bit. So I formatted my Fedora box and loaded Xandros on it. I am quite impress with it overall, but the killing points is that I cannot find good instructions for setting up my Nividia card. Also the movie player that comes with it plays copys of a DVD but not the original due to encryption. Email me if you know an answer to the se questions. My graphic card is a geforce 8400GS. Email =

Thanks for letting me share.

Hi Tracy,
Your granny could probably run Xandros - its really that easy. I do use ZoneAlarm but I am not under the false impression that it protects against spyware. Zone Labs have a seperate utility for pest control that you may want to look at. These pests if they get into your machine can still call out through a software firewall like zonealarm - they do this by linking to a program on your computer that you have set as trusted - like Internet Explorer. Free software like Adaware and SpyBot WILL protect you if run regularly. Let me know how your granny gets on :-)



I run Linux & MS- as dual/triple boots generally.

For a MS firewall to detect outgoing prob's- use Zonealarm.

RE: ease of use & Linux. Alway relative. As in, I have no relatives who could run Linux- lol. Kidding.

The only time it gets hairy is when they want to buy software that they see or are told about & you have to say "no, you can't use that". If the people testing out Linux right now are the typical email/ebay/net surfing junkies- Linux is it.

As you say- at least until the script kiddies decide to open fire on Linux....

Tracy ;^)

We all have our likes and dislikes, and sometimes we blame the wrong thing for creating our woe's. I have run MS Windows 2000 for some time now - and it has bugs, annoying ones that cause you to loose work. If you spend 4 hours working on a document, only to lose a portion of it because windows reports that it cannot access memory at location xxxxx, and that happens fairly frequently then you cannot really be blamed for developing a dislike for windows. Microsoft know about the problem its documented in their database (along with many others) but the only fix they give for it, is for their own graphics editor. Windows XP has the same bug but it occurs less often. Because of this I took to running Gimp on Linux first with slackware, then with SUSE 8 - and recently SUSE 9.1. All of these Linux Distros were difficult to set up properly, none of them worked seamlessly with Microsoft Networks. But they all ran Gimp and didnt crash with memory problems so I continued to use them. Now they are all in the trash can, I have installed Xandros the free download version. It installed easily, recognised all my hardware, set up the microsoft network, setup internet, all I really had to do was tell it my name, password, and what country I came from. I can access Xp and 98 computers across the local network with no problems, I have never in my life had an easier Linux install. I dont have a printer on the Xandros machine, so I thought I would try using the HP Deskjet 950c connected to my XP computer, using the control center I selected peripheral devices, Printers, pressed Add and answered the question - in a few minutes my printer was working across the network. So I'm with Steve on this - Xandros is easy to install, very easy. It works seamlessly with the windows network, and will be very familiar to anyone who has previously worked with Windows.

On the subject of spyware and malware - an antivirus program is unlikely to help, these programs are usually installed from the browser, or by the user themselves installing free programs that contain these pests. Linux is just as vunerable to them as Windows, but as yet linux has not been targeted by the pest generators. The Mozilla based browser firefox has some builtin protection against them, prevention for popups and tracking cookes is built in. So on the whole Steve is correct - the Xandros system he setup for his parents probably is more secure and stable than the old Windows XP version, however that may change if Linux gains in popularity. The function of pestware is to send out information from your computer to the pestware creator, firewalls prevent attacks coming in - they do nothing about stuff going out. There is no real defence against this other than preventing them being installed in the first place, Xandros has the Xandros network to download approved programs from - if you stick to this, and use a browser with pest protection builtin (such as firefox) then you should be fairly safe. So again I'm with Steve on this.

If you are running windows and think you have pestware problems try running adaware - a free version is available for download from - spybot is another option. a search on google for pestware will give you a list.


Xandros is excellent, but how do I get my Mitsubishi DiamondView 648u USB scanner to work?

I have installed Xandros, everything went OK. I like it a lot but then again I have a windows XP Pro machine and I like that a lot aswell! I don't have problems with virus's and trojans on XP because I run it behind a Linux firewall, I have AVG anti-virus installed (the Free edition) SpyBot and the final piece of the jigsaw a program called IE privacy keeper. As a PC tech 98% of the trojans, adware etc I find are stored in the internet temporary files and IE privacy Keeper deletes these every time you close Internet Explorer, since I installed these programs I haven't had a problem with adware or trojans. All the programs I have mentioned are free to download and use for personal use. If you rely on XP itself to be secure then your heading for trouble. As for Linux, it rules in the server world but has a lot to do to crack the desktop world, but Xandros is a step in the right direction

Edward I had an Nvidia card worked well with Xandros in one machine but played up in another,as it did with another disto with Nvidia support, beyond me to figure out why but a reinstall, especially if you have nothing critical in your Xandros home may fix the problem. it has fixed a couple of hardware issues I have had in the past.Reformat the partition completely first.

Initially I was very excited with Xandros. I downloaded the free edition and it installed quickly and easily. I had a dual boot machine with WindowsXP in less than one half hour. The desktop was intuitive (to an XP user), I was able to read my NTFS partitions and more. However, my nVidia display is stretched in one dimension giving distorted images. Not acceptable since I wish to work in Gimp a lot. No amount of fussing with settings has fixed the problem even though my hardware is supposedly directly supported! Posts on the Xandros users forum has yielded no response nor has a post on the nVidia Linux forum. Three days of browsing forums and help files on the web have given me lots of entertainment but no solutions. And from what I see in the forums I am not alone. If Xandros/Linux is to become a real alternative to Windows it must support hardware better and be more accessable. Xandros is a good start but without support it is doomed to failure.


Whenever I read comments to an article or column, I'm amazed at people who take sides. This article relates one person's experience, it naturally contains the faults of the writer in it's content. That should be understood from the beginning.
I believe the true focus of the article to be on how easy it was to install Xandros on many (not all machines) and how easy it was for former Windows users to migrate. Having migrated, and given the inherent differences in the OS's, a user is likely to see far fewer software attacks in the form of viruses, malware, spyware, etc. Notice I said FEWER. and that the configuration of things (peripherials and the like) is GUI based on a Linux 'engine'. One of the things that scares people the most about going to Linux is the perception that you have to learn a whole new way to do things, and you'd be going back to the days of having to know what to type on a command line rather than click on a mouse.
What's also interesting is that BOTH OS communities, Linux and Windows have to adapt to doing some things in a new and slightly different way, and that each needs to embrace the change and not fight it. Windows users need to commit to possibly learning more about the inner workings of the Linux OS than they currently know about Windows. And Linux users need to embrace the use of a GUI as a facilitator and tool, and not as a sign that the user's intelligence level is lacking.
I think I heard this once....
"Why can't we all just get along."

The most sane review I have read.

Hi everyone. I'm a security consultant and I have to say that I'm with Luke on this one. I think any reasonable person realises that every operating system has it's strengths/weaknesses. The implication in this article is that by simply moving to Xandros your security concerns are behind you. An extremely dangerous and short-sighted attitude. In fact there seems to be no concern of Linux threats such as virus/worm/rootkits etc. From the article, you get the impression that once the Xandros firewall is enabled, you have no security worries any longer. (btw, Luke's point about nmap is v. good)

I would not say that the writer is biased, but he certainly appears uninformed of the threats that exist in the wild.

I am so frustrated with XP that I have been persuaded to look at Linux as an alternative. one major problem is my work site is a Web based program , that uses Explorer 5.5 and up. I tried to open the site on my brother-in laws Linux based laptop and it would not work. The error message said I needed to have Win XP Explorer >5.2

I tried RedHat Linux 9 Personal (not Fedora), and Suse Professional 9.1 before trying Xandros Deluxe 2.5. I'm a new Linux user, and Xandros is - by far - the easiest to setup and begin using right away for a new user. Unlike the other two, ALL of my hardware was detected, I can access my other Windows computers on my network. I can navigate the file system with ease, and do just about everything that my Windows PC's can do. Performance is surprisingly good on an older 800 Mhz Duron with 256 MB of RAM and a 20 GB hard drive using an older ATi graphics card (Rage XL chipset.) It would really shine on newer, faster machines.

I'm not against using a command line, but I'd rather not have to scratch my head to figure out how to get basic stuff to work right away. This is what makes Xandros stand out from the rest.

There is only a couple of mild problems to correct (can't print to my HP printer on my Windows network, and some web pages don't pop up), but other than that, all is well so far.

This is the distro to use for a Windows user to gradually move to Linux. Do what is comfortable and clear to you now, and still remain productive. Later - if you want - learn the command line and Linux in-depth at your own pace.

As one user above said - this is the one to watch. Version 3.0 or 3.5 should be a real force in the marketplace.

I just signed on to beta Cedega- this is the Linux project which allows the running of MS apps on the Linux platform.

If this goes through- even with the occasional 'burp" I will drop MS- for good.
