Xandros users not too happy about Microsoft deal

I got this comment on my Xandros-Microsoft editorial from a gentleman who left the name Bruce Layne (could be real, who knows?), and it's worth repeating here:

I purchased all four major releases of Xandros, starting with 1.0, and all the Premium versions when available. I received help from the great Xandros user forum and it was a real community. I paid it forward by helping others. I felt like I was contributing to a viable commercial alternative to Windows and the Microsoft monopoly. Now, after four and a half years, I learn it was a lie.

I'm currently installing PCLinuxOS 2007 on my computer and my wife's computer, and so far it looks better than the latest version of Xandros.

Barely half an hour to finish the install, Beryl runs with a very slight load, some quirks I hadn’t expected, coming from this windows world… but overall pretty amazing.
