A good day to be at a Linux show

Filed under
SUSE

I couldn't make it to BrainShare, Novell's tradeshow in Salt Lake City, this year because my plane had a small fire behind its cockpit's control panels. Afterwards, the airlines couldn't find a way to get me there until 24-hours later, so I skipped the show. Darn!

Because of that, I missed seeing Novell Inc. senior VP John Dragoon holding up a copy of USA Today with a headline trumpeting, "Microsoft Delays New Windows" as the convention hall crowd of several thousand cheered on.

Yes, it would have been a great day to have been part of that crowd.

But, even though I missed the show, even from my home office, I can tell that it's has been a great week for the Linux desktop.

I talked with several Novell executives by phone this week, and time and again they said that they were doing their darnest to make SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10 not just the best Linux desktop, but the best business desktop, period. And, yes, they meant better than XP Pro and Vista.

Full Story.
