      "XFS and JFS are listed as the supported operating systems"

      Besides the typo, XFCE, or any other desktop environment for that matter, on a Linux server is plain stupid. It doesn't ease anything, but it fools winministrators and macministrators into believing they can do anything server side with their beloved mice. And, while I find looking at them struggling a lot of fun, it's not the intended outcome.

          Sound business idea: take the branding of a desktop distro that only ever lost money, use it to re-brand a server distro that has never made a profit, and market it as a revenue stream for your investors.

          Maybe I'm missing something, but I'd check to see if the address of the company doing this is located somewhere in Nigeria.
