Primed for desktop Linux
The consultants that rolled out Australia's biggest known Linux desktop project are backing themselves for more.
A while back I wrote about Kennards Hire's deployment of about 400 desktops running Fedora release 3.
For all the claims we hear about Linux being ready for the desktop from vendors like Novell, Sun, and IBM, Kennards is still the sole Linux desktop user (that we know of) in Australia.
That gives the consultants, and their fledgling Linux desktop company Ordinate Systems, tremendous bragging rights.
Ordinate director Jim Russell recently told me why he thought the time was right to create a company based around desktop Linux.
