Xandros, Ximian and Zire

At last! Xandros Linux is up and running at a decent resolution. Firefox is installed and running. Ximian Evolution is configured and my Palm Zire has generously donated it’s contact and address details to prime Evolution with vital information from my production machine running XP Pro.

Now at least I can explore the possibilities of using Linux. At the very least I can use it to insert records into a SQL Server database, ie. my blogs on this site (the joys of asp!).


My name is Peter Holloway and having lived in Southport, England for 20 years, followed by a couple of years back in Northern Ireland I'm now working as an IT Manager in West Sussex. I was born in Northern Ireland and raised in the suburbs of Belfast just off the Saintfield Road, attended Cairnshill Primary School and Annadale Grammar School. I studied for a London University BD at Belfast Bible College.
