ABSTRACT
Xandros and LinuxCertified have released LinuxCertified Xandros laptops for students, educators, researchers and developers. The laptops come with Xandros pre-installed, drag-and-drop disc burning and optional wireless connectivity to enable seamless data access and file sharing on Windows and UNIX networks from any location. Xandros chairman Frederick H. Berenstein said that the company is delighted to team up with LinuxCertified to deliver the Linux laptop solutions. Through the combined leadership of the companies' software and hardware engineering teams, they have crafted turnkey products that combine the Xandros Desktop's legendary ease of use with the Windows connectivity required in academic and other research settings. The laptops provide a full-spectrum modem, Fast Ethernet and optional 802.11b wireless networking, high-resolution screens, DVD and 3-in-1 card readers. They also include a rich set of development tools in a stable, Debian-based environment. According to LinuxCertified president Chander Kant, the laptops have gone through a rigorous certification process to assure that the Xandros Desktop operating system and its hardware work together in perfect harmony.
