Introducing Xandros Enterprise Linux

 Today the PC/OpenSystems Development team is pleased to announce Xandros Enterprise Linux 22.04.2.  This line replaces our PC/OS line of products  for our Enterprise customers.  Xandros Enterprise products are based on the Ubuntu 22.04 base for LTS support. These releases are intended for our enterprise and business customers.  Customers can rest assured that Xandros Enterprise has a longer support cycle and is supported even past the Ubuntu End Of Life.  In these releases we utilize the Linux standard Flatpak application management vs the Ubuntu SNAP application management.  Xandros Enterprise Linux products are 64 bit Intel and AMD compatible with ARM support coming within the next year.  PC/OpenSystems LLC is a highly trusted distributor with clients in many educational facilities, law enforcement agencies, as well as small to medium sized businesses with some Fortune 500 customers among those ranks.  PC/OpenSystems LLC continues our tradition of providing our customers with easy to use and high performance software.  There are three releases for Xandros Enterprise Linux that we will break down right now.

Xandros Community Edition

Xandros Community Edition is free to download, free to distribute and free to install on as many systems as you like.  Xandros is a free community enterprise operating system.  We already distribute a free OS in the form of Freespire, so what is the difference?  Xandros Community Edition does contain binary only code and non-free drivers.  Freespire does not.  Xandros Community Edition follows the same release cycle as Xandros Enterprise Desktop meaning we release new versions every 12 to 18 months.  New releases of Freespire come out every 4 to 6 months.  

Xandros Community Edition contains the following features:

  • Kernel 5.19.0-42
  • Firefox ESR 102.11
  • Thunderbird 102.11
