SUSE 11 vs Windows 7: no contest

Filed under
SUSE

SUSE Linux 11 has been out less than 10 days but already there are comparisons of the distribution to Windows - all of which are being accepted as compliments.

It has to be noted that some of the positive press is coming from those who are close to Novell - to the extent that they receive software well in advance of the public release.

Interoperability seems to be the buzzword of the moment and the fact that SUSE can play well with the various "standards" that Microsoft has established is being interpreted as a plus point.

Since it signed a patent deal with Microsoft in November 2006, Novell has been trying to sell SUSE based on the slogan "we play better with Windows."

If that had worked, you would expect to see some better Linux sales figures from Novell. Such is not the case; Novell is a distant second to Red Hat and its figures are not getting any better.

Home SUSE 11 vs Windows 7: no contest

When you buy SLED you pay Microsoft for software patents that it never revealed. People will hopefully steer away from it and use proper solutions like Ubuntu, Mandriva, PCLinuxOS, and many others.
