As a Debian-based distribution, Xandros has continued to add its own special sauce to the already simple and powerful upgrade mechanisms provided by Debian's apt-get, developing and refining its Xandros Networks tool to simplify updates and the installation of additional software. Figure 5 shows the Xandros Networks tool after searching for available updates.

Unlike desktop and business products, the extra software that you can install on Xandros Server isn't a variety of desktop productivity software. The pane at left in Figure 4 shows the additional software choices available for Xandros Server, which includes server-level packages such as Oracle, JBoss, SugarCRM, DB2, and so on, as discussed earlier.
