Xandros Embedded Desktop 2021 Release





Today the PC/Opensystems Enterprise development team is pleased to announce the release of Xandros Embedded Desktop 2021. This new platform offers total flexibility and extreme performance for customers who administer high performance / availability servers / desktops. 

Xandros ED2021 is a hybrid OS - total flexibility means deploying web apps or traditional desktop applications seamlessly. Xandros Embedded Desktop is a lean system containing a web browser, e-mail client and a few careful selected utility apps - extreme performance requires a lightweight, optimized system with a reduced footprint for potential security incursions. 

Users of Xandros ED2021 can of course peruse the vast Xandros / Ubuntu / Debian repositories and download the traditional desktop applications they need to supplement what is included by default. Xandros Embedded Desktop has been featured in : 

  • Developer workstations

  • Servers / Mainframes support elements
  • Database management

 These are edge cases; more the exception than the rule. Xandros Embedded Desktop excels as a traditional desktop OS - it can be deployed on a myriad of hardware platforms - high performance workstations, Intel Chromebooks / IOT systems and if necessary, its frugal footprint can make legacy hardware shine. 

Xandros ED2021 is one of PC/OS’ most versatile OS products. All of this + PC/OS’ 24x7 trusted infrastructure. Xandros Embedded Desktop 2021 in any of its flavors on any hardware you choose is the only commercial Linux desktop alternative to Windows 11.

Xandros OpenDesktop 2021 Released







Today the PC/Opensystems Enterprise development team is pleased to announce the release of Xandros OpenDesktop 2021. This update offers unprecedented reliability and performance. Utilizing the lean XFCE desktop environment, Xandros OpenDesktop allows you to maximize the value of your current hardware, allowing you to decide what applications you want to run and what role you want your system(s) to provide. 

This platform has been repeatedly tested and proven to provide rock solid performance and dependability, desktop PC or mobile. Xandros OpenDesktop is the first step in the new direction that PCOS is taking to transition our entire stack to a secure cloud platform. We have reworked OpenDesktop so that not only do we utilize top of the line web based applications, but the user or organization can add any local applications that they choose from the vast Xandros / Ubuntu / Debian repositories. A smaller resource footprint also makes Xandros the logical choice among available commercial Linux desktops for legacy hardware or EOL Chromebooks. 

While Xandros OpenDesktop has been demonstrated to run extremely well on traditional desktop, mobile systems and workstations, you can also also purchase one of our own optimized and fully supported desktop / mobile systems from PC/OpenSystems. Because Microsoft Office 365 is so popular among our business and education customers. Xandros OpenDesktop comes in two flavors : 1). Standard which contains Google web apps and 2). 2021 Office 365 which contains all of Microsoft's web applications as well its Bing search engine. Xandros OpenDesktop 2021 Office 365 provides you with the document format compatibility you love. Plus a familiar desktop environment / minus the overhead you can expect from the upcoming Windows 11 OS. Xandros uses less of your hardware’s resources and doesn’t have any of the TPM 2.0 requirements, leaving your systems free to perform their intended function : run your LOB applications. All of this will of course be supported 24x7 by PCOS’ trusted infrastructure. 

Xandros OpenDesktop 2021 in any of its flavors is the only commercial Linux desktop alternative to the upcoming Windows 11 that you need. Xandros OpenDesktop 2021 also features : 

Full GUI System – XFCE + DWN Tiling Window Manager 
LTS Kernel 5.4.0-81 
OpenSSH Client 
Google Chrome 
Ice SSB 
Chrome web application framework 
NFS / XFS / JFS / BTRFS / ZFS - exFAT support 
Multimedia support 
Remote Administration capability 
Biometric Services 
Samba 
LDAP Directory services
