Xandros brings 3G to Linux clients

I must admit that I was a bit shocked to see Xandros offering 3G network support in their latest distribution. While it is a fine Linux distro, seeing things like Bluetooth and 3G is still going to take some getting used to.

Xandros recently released a version of its desktop Linux software aimed at the European market, tying in some of the advanced and emerging mobility services that are being developed and deployed in that region. If you support end-users who travel to Europe, and want a Linux laptop, this could be the right system.

Announced at the CEBIT show in Hannover, Germany, Xandros Desktop OS 3.1 includes built-in support and drivers for universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) and 3G network hardware. The desktop – targeted at corporate users – includes pre-configured software for authenticating to Windows-based networks with Active Directory. Source: LinuxWorld
