    Linux XP


    Hello, I am looking for reviews on Linux XP. I want to install this on my 14-year-old son's computer. Any and all reviews both good and bad will be appreciated!

    Edit: This will not be a dual boot. I only want an easy to use Linux OS on the box. His Desktop PC is an E-Machines (POS)

    You have to understand that Linux XP is not free. You are entitled to boot it 99 times before having to pay the 40$ fee.

    So Linux XP is a commercial distribution.

    A review can be found here :

    Thanks for the reply. Yes I understand it's not free and I have NO problem paying for it, if it is what I am looking for.

    Edit: Thanks for the link! Not a very good review of it! I will check into Linspire.

    Again, thanks!
