default Linux XP Desktop 2008

Post by gempal on Tue Apr 20, 2010 9:01 am


Introduction:
Linux XP is a strange beast. From what I gather it tries very hard to
emulate the look and feel of Microsoft Windows in order to make the
transition to Linux easier to the Microsoft-familiar.
That is an admirable goal shared by some rather successful
commercial entities like Xandros. Apparently with this release, Linux
XP is more like “Linux Vista,” however. I question the logic of
emulating an OS that has received such a chilly reception among end
users.
I must stress from the beginning that I do not agree with the idea
behind this distribution. I believe half-measures like this that spend
so much time and effort trying to turn Linux into something it’s not
(Windows) are detrimental to end-users.
If someone wants to learn Linux, great, but they should learn proper
Linux, not this bastardized Frankenstein monster. There, now I’ve said
my peace. On to the rant.

Install:
I should note that at the time I wrote this the English-default version
of Linux XP 2008 was not available, only the Russian one. Thus a few of
the screenshots will be in Russian. Thankfully the installer itself was
a modified version of Redhat’s Anaconda, so if you’ve installed Redhat
Enterprise or Fedora you can feel your way through it.
The graphics associated with Linux XP look well done. They borrow a
bit from both Vista and OS X on their website and during the installer.
It’s obvious that a lot of work has been done to really make Linux look
like a Microsoft product.
Upon reboot I was greeted by the login screen, which was similar if
not exactly like the one for Vista. Notice the yellow box at the top.
Linux XP is only available for free if you agree to a 30 day “trial”,
after which you must purchase it.
This is quite similar to a purchased version of Windows XP. I can
only guess that the system locks down similarly after 30 days. Of all
the things to emulate from XP, Windows Product Activation is perhaps
the one thing I wanted the least.
You’ll also notice that like Microsoft Windows, the user is never
prompted to create a regular user account. Instead the default is to
run the desktop as root user, which is a very, very dangerous thing to
do. This risk is multiplied when you factor in a completely new user of
Linux. Bad idea.
I was given the choice after logging in to use either an XP look or
a Vista look. For a lark I chose the Vista look. I flailed around in
the dark a bit and finally found the language switcher (keep in mind at
the time this was all in Russian). It gave me a dialog that I assumed
said “changes will not appear until you reboot.” I rebooted and found I
was correct.
My attempt to install Bookworm using their “Install Windows
Applications” icon failed. WINE Doors asked me for some credentials and
then decided to give up and sit there for several minutes. I canceled
it. Attempts to install with “Run in WINE Windows Emulator” also didn’t
work. I didn’t feel like trying it from the command line.
MP3 and WMV/MPG playback worked as expected with Rhythmbox and Totem, respectively.
Software Selection:
The usual suspects were installed by default: Firefox, Pidgin,
Totem, OpenOffice.org. Surprisingly, Java and GCC were also present.
GIMP and Inkscape as well as XSane were included. The usual GNOME games
were installed, with two notable additions: SuperTux and Planet Penguin
Racer.
Conclusion:
I was surprised at the potential usability of this distribution. It
has a lot of things included that will make an end-user happy. My only
caveats would be support, software, price, and root.
I question whether or not a relatively obscure distribution like
this would get good support from the community or have reasonably sized
software repositories.
I’m also not too keen on the price, but I suppose the same could be
said about Xandros. I am very much not impressed with the handling of
“run everything as root” which circumvents one of the key security
features that Linux has over Windows.
Despite these concerns, Linux XP does manage to provide a relatively
stable desktop with lots of features. It just happens to look like
Vista now, which could be a good or bad thing depending on your
perspective.
Update (10 jun 08) – It has been brought to my attention that the
“Buy Now” and “Download” links on the Linux XP website are no longer
functional. I was also told that they are not answering emails, so it’s
possible this is now a dead project. I’ll post another update if that
changes.
how to active:
Full source code has also been published so that programmers can view
it and to make it easier to crack or find a workaround to bypass Linux
WGA.
So what’s the way to crack or bypass Linux Genuine Advantage? It you
manage to install the program, and you get locked out from Linux system
after your password grace period expires after 30 days, here what you
can do to uninstall LGA:
1. Reboot the machine.
2. Boot into single user mode.
3. Remove the entry it created at the bottom of /etc/inittab.
4. Type this command: kill -HUP 1
5. Type this command: rm -f /usr/local/sbin/linux-genuine-advantage
6. Type this command: rm -rf /etc/linux-genuine-advantage/
7. Type this command: rm -f /etc/nologin
