Bull, reread the interview. All of the answers are deliberately vague and devoid of any real answers. As far as needing a distribution for the desktop, what is Mandrake?
All of the other distributions are open about how they contribute back to Linux, Xandros brushes it off with some vague statement "we submit our patches like good boys". Exactally how many kernel developers do they employ and what have they contributed back. What community projects have they sponsored or participated in. They make claims about their great Windows compatability then they should have made some significant contributions to the Samba code base or Wine.
Everything I have seen or heard from these folks indicates that they are just parasites and this interview does nothing to change my mind.
