SUSE Linux 10.1 For *YOUR* Desktop

Filed under
SUSE

Quite often, I read articles about whether Linux is ready for the Desktop. I’ll be honest with you, it is. However, it is not a question of whether it is ready for the desktop, but whose desktop is it ready for.

Linux has been running on desktops for at least 8 years that I personally know of. At first, you had to be a real wizard to get it going. However, since then, the knowledge required to use it by the end user has slowly gone down a bit at a time. Now, I’ve heard of very young children being able to install Linux and use it, just as I’ve heard that the oldest of the old have done the same thing.

Therefore, It can’t be that Linux itself is not ready. I think we should look at it more from a standpoint of “For whom is this the right solution?”
