You could try these guys (gals), http://www.hotchips.co.nz/ although I note that they list Version 2 also, but I'm sure if you dropped them an email...

You buy v2.0, then connect to Xandros Networks and install all updates (you have to do this as Administrator).

That automatically updates you to v2.5, though the version number still shows as v2.0. I emailed Xandros Support to query this, and they replied that if I have got all available updates then I have version 2.5. They stated a reason for not showing this on each computer's "About Xandros" page but I do not recall their reasoning. Suffice it to say, if if showed v2.5 after all updates like most software does, then there would not be such confusion, and they would not be fielding emails to their Support staff!

Updates to v2.5 are free, except for updates to Crossover, which is a commercial add on. If you want to update that, you have to pay for it, which you can access through the Xandros Shop links.
