Freedows - Where is LQ's ISO?

While I am Googling for a source of Freedows, I just wondered if anyone has tried it.

While I used to speak Portuguese, as one does after spending 11 months in Brazil , that was 30 years ago, so I don't know how successful my search will be.

Incidentally, I learned of Freedows existence, from an article in the January 2005 issue of Linux Format Magazine in the UK - apparently it was designed to look and work just like Windows XP while running on a Linux kernel. Maybe MS would buy it in order to avoid having to 'produce' Longhorn some time in the next decade! However, I fear that they will have too buy the Banco do Brazil (a quasi-government entity) and that might be more than all Bill's billions.

It's a fancy XP like UI on top of Fedora (or something very much like it) with CrossoverOffice (or something very much like it), which is why you can't find it. It's not free -- much like Lindows or Xandros.

If you want the ability to run M$ code, get Crossover. If you want an XP like interface, run KDE. If you want the ability to run M$ code well *and* an XP like interface, run XP.
