ABSTRACT
This article reports on the collaboration of Xandros, a developer of Linux solutions, and Microtel Computer Systems to develop built-to-order desktop and laptop computers, as of July 2005. Says Rich Hindman, vice president of marketing for Microtel, Xandros is known for its user-friendly features, making even a novice user feel right at home, and the new security features restore the joy of using the web. According to Xandros CEO Andreas Typaldos, Microtel's built-to-order computers present outstanding selection and value to EarthLink subscribers. Based on certification tests performed in the Xandros Labs, Microtel's name-brand components will also provide excellent quality and performance. All Xandros computers include free Skype-to-Skype calling worldwide, plus an exclusive bonus voucher for up to 120 minutes of SkypeOut calling to any telephone number in the world. All Xandros computers include built-in invulnerability to most viruses, worms and spyware that plague Windows-based machines, and the Xandros Personal Firewall wizard to guard against Internet intruders. Buyers can select the enhanced Internet security package with Xandros Anti-Virus, encrypted home folders, and secure access to virtual private networks.
