    (( the best desktop Linux OS distribution that rivals Windows XP Home and XP Pro. The Blue Katana provided distribution of the best desktop Linux package is the most user friendly operating system available. You are allowed to install it on as many systems as you wish. Blue Katana comes with a full range of applications which are installed along with the operating system. Some of these include a full office suite, Instant Messaging, ipod file manager, Palm Pilot synchronizing tool, media players (CD and DVD) CD and DVD burning tools, games, internet firewall, and dozens more!

    I've never heard of KATANA. Beware, as it could be a sham. I'm looking at that screenshot, and I can tell you that this could be done with the correct amount of tweaking on any Linux distro. You don't need to buy a commercial distro to make it look nice.

    Sounds like a lot of other distros.

    If you are looking for one, I would suggest one that has all this (which as I mentioned is a lot) and is much more well known so you can get better support from the community.

    I also have never heard of it, I cannot find it on eBay (a general search for "Katana Linux" reveals nothing, nor does "Katana" under Computers), and a Google finds nothing.

    I will say that every Linux distro either comes with those by default or makes it extremely easy to install them. So ignore that...it's most likely a scam.

    HI,
    here;s link it looks a little like a susie clone to me, I ve heard of a KATANA hardware company maybe they built this software for their server's they sell and had a few extra cd's he bought, It looks like a generic susie. But its really a version of Debain 2004 .. I found the icon on the broswer, go figure.
