Etter lanseringen av den første versjonen av Lindows, måtte de tåle en del kritikk. Med versjon 4.0 er det mye som tyder på at de er i ferd med å bli bedre. Det er flere nettsider som allerede har testet ut programmet og gir det gode tilbakemeldinger. Her er et lite utvalg:
Extremetech sier dette:
"Easy install, flash tutorial, easy updating and new spam/ad tools are included in this release. The base OS pricing has changed, as has the Click-N-Run pricing."
De gir Lindows 4.0 totalt 9 av totalt 10 mulige poeng. Les hele testen her.
Linux-Universe er en annen nettside som har sett nærmere på operativsystemet de gir Lindows 82 av 100 mulige poeng. Dette sier de:
"Lindows is not perfect, but the overall experience was very good. I was pleasantly surprised. The install was one of the most painless I have ever done for a Linux distribution. The install was extremely fast and the system itself post-install was very snappy and responsive in most situations. Lindows is currently about as good as it gets for Linux on the consumer desktop."

News.com fremhever SPAM filteret og popup i sin korte omtale.
"Robertson also touted new additions to the operating system, including SpamSafe, a "smart" spam filter that screens out unwanted e-mail, and AdSafe, which blocks pop-up advertising pages on Web sites."

Et par utvalgte utklipp fra diskusjonsforumet til Lindows fra deres siste nyhetsbrev:
"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!"
