4.0 has been available for purchase for about a week now, and I wanted to take this chance
to let you know what other people have been saying about our latest release.
Ziff Davis' ExtremeTech
got a hold of LindowsOS 4.0 and their verdict was a '9 out of 10,'
"[LindowsOS 4.0] stands as a good example of what's really possible for
Linux on the desktop. We recommend Lindows for users or businesses that
want an easy-to-use desktop OS that is comfortable for anyone to use –
even complete newbies to Linux."...
The reviewer even sat his mom
down in front of the LindowsOS computer and...
"...offered no help, no
assistance and no advice on how to use Lindows."
The article reports
that LindowsOS 4.0 "passed the mom test," and even has a picture of the
reviewer's mom in front of the LindowsOS computer, giving it a thumbs
CNET News wrote this last week in an article called Lindows tackles spam, pop-up ads,

Tux Reports hailed LindowsOS in their review...
is the best desktop OS we've seen to date...We congratulate Lindows.com
on producing an excellent product. You've earned our respect with this
King of the Desktop."
And in the Lindows.com forums, praise for LindowsOS 4.0 was easy to find. Here are just a few of the many typical posts about 4.0 from those who have downloaded LindowsOS 4.0 and posted their comments on our forums...
"4.0 is working FLAWLESSLY for me on two different machines.
I repeat, FLAWLESSLY!! I think Lindows is definitely moving in the right direction with
this release and yes I think it was absolutely ready for prime time."
|"I LOVE 4.0!!!! ...it works GREAT!!! -- it has been running non stop since Monday with
out a hitch!!"
|"The first version of LOS I used was Sneak Preview 2 (SP2). I just installed LOS 4.0 today and I was blown away. LOS has gone light years in a year and a half! I feel that 4.0 is finally the LindowsOS that I liked enough to blow away my Windows problem. Keep up the great work! This one is awesome!"
|"I thought 3.0 was good, but 4.0 is WOW! How it looks right out of the box is impressive. Excellent job LOS staff... I must say I am very impressed."
|"Lindows is finally at the point I am going to be recommending it to my customers. It took about 10 minutes to install. It came up on my network right away. I was able to map my shared drives on the XP box and the shared printer in just a few minutes. My digital camera works with no additional software. Lindows installs easier than Windows. I even changed video cards three times to get the best one and it detected all of them and never asked for a driver disk. So much better than Windows."
|"LOS 4.0 is a great upgrade! Kudos to the Lindows Team"
Here's an email we just received...
I finally found the time to install LINDOWS 4.0 and it installed like a charm, fast, smooth, trouble free, and flawless. My hat's off to you. I started making use of Click-N-Run and it too is flawless. You've got a much better product that I ever expected based on my long experience with Microsoft. The customer support you and your staff extended to me was absolutely superb, an astounding contrast to your competition. LINDOWS.COM is head and shoulders above your nearest competition in all aspects of the market.
Thank you very much for everything. I'm ecstatic that I made the transition to LINDOWS and I'm certain we'll have a long and happy relationship.

And finally, I'd like to share an e-mail I received a couple of days ago from one of our of our attorneys:

I want to congratulate you guys on a real accomplishment --
you've converted my computer-phobic wife to a Lindows user. Lynn is
pregnant with our first son and has recently been ordered to bed rest.
My ThinkPad melted down recently after our maid dropped a picture frame
on it, so I took the Lindows Mobile Computer that I bought from GearZoo
as a backup and downloaded LindowsOS 4.0 and installed it on this computer. I set it up for myself
thinking Lynn could use our desktop (it has MS Windows ME), but Lynn,
recently idled and desperate for something to ease her bed rest
boredom, took it to bed with her and began surfing, emailing, and, for
the first time, downloading applications from Click-N-Run. After a day she had downloaded a zillion files from CNR and was using StarOffice
to write an article for Parenting Magazine, which will be published in
the fall. She now claims to be a "Linux Geek" and says it's the
easiest computer we've ever owned and is now insisting that we dump ME
and install it on our desktop and (when resurrected) ThinkPad. How
fate can change lives! By the way, that Tron game is wickedly
these customer comments and press reviews give you an idea that not only do we
here at Lindows.com think that 4.0 is "ready for prime time,"...but so
do many others who have been using it this past week.
If you still haven't tried it yet, there's never been a better
time to get LindowsOS 4.0. It is our best version yet, and with our money-back guarantee and a two week trial of all of our
add-on paks (via digital download), you can see all that LindowsOS has
to offer. Once you check it out, I'm sure you'll agree that it really
is providing access to "The World's Most Affordable Software!"
