    Why is Xandros considered a leading developer? Is it because of their Corel/Debian roots? I think that it is a bit of marketing deception, myself. I hate that the tech industry is so quick to pump their own egos up that they write and then believe their own press releases. That's one of the reasons why M$ is so damn quick to push their crap down our throats.

    Never mind me, folks, I'm pissed off. Oh well, life goes on.

    Xandros did contribute a number of patches to the KDE project and I'm certain that they have aided in getting the debian packageset up to date. But other than that I don't think they have remarked themselves in the community.

    Question I have is when did Corel ever make it to 3.0???? I had 1.0 and it sucked big time. Then apparently there was a 1.1 and that was it. Where does this 3.0 come from?

    They did release a 2.0 I think and the 3.0 was a development version.

    Corel Linux Second Edition = Corel Linux 1.2. Thus, the actual version number was 1.2, but it was considered a quasi 2.0 release. I also understand that an official 2.0 was being worked on and nearing completion when Corel dumped Linux. Then, Xandros made enough modifications to the distro to warrent a 3.0 moniker.
