Linux XP 2006 Professional Edition

Linux XP 2006 Professional Edition (Review)

Reviewed by Yusuf KS

Linux XP is one of Linux distro that based on Fedora / Red Hat. Linux XP appearance looks like Windows. The start menu looks like Windows XP, but the navigation looks like Windows 98. Linux XP origin come from Russian, so don’t be shocked if some softwares in Linux XP is equipped with Russian language.

Linux XP can runs some Windows softwares, it’s possible because Linux XP has Wine (and ready to run) by default. Winamp, MS Office, MS Paint, are an Windows-based software that can runs on Linux XP.

By default, Linux XP will install some softwares on hard disk drive. In my opinion, the softwares aren’t complete. There’s no Office softwares such as OpenOffice; no GwenView, no Scribus, no Ink, no Games!! Here are the software default installed list on Linux XP :

Accessories :
Archieve Manager
Calculator
Character Map
Dictionary (need Internet connection)
File Browser
Floppy Formater
Network Server (Network Neighborhood)
Notepad
PDF Viewer
StarDict (English-Rusia Dictionary)
Sync with PDA

Graphics :
Digital Camera
Photo Tools
The Gimp

Internet :
aMule File Sharing Agent
aMule Link Creator
aMule Statistic
Email
FireFox
IM
IRC
Terminal Server Client
Video Conference
WiFi

Multimedia :
CD Player
GQ Radio
Music Player
Sound Recorder
Totem Movie Player
TV Time Television Viewer
Volume Control

Office :
DIA Diagrams
Project Management
Linux XP is a commercial (not a free) Linux distro. The price is US $ 40, it still cheaper than Microsoft Windows OEM’s price. Even thought it’s commercial Linux distro, you can still try it for [about] 99 boot times.

Conclusion : Linux XP will be better if the Linux XP maker adds more softwares on Linux XP by default. Linux XP will be one of my favorites Linux distro if Linux XP is a free Linux distro (not a commercial Linux distro).

  2. memang itu kelemahan Linux XP : tidak gratis (dan cukup mahal pula harganya walau masih lebih murah Linux XP daripada Windows). Pasti akan lebih hebat, populer dan banyak yang pakai jika Linux XP ini gratis.
