  Microsoft Preps For Desktop Battle
Time: 08:51 EST/13:51 GMT | News Source: CRN | Posted By: Jonathan Tigner

As Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer acknowledged competitive concerns about Linux on the desktop in a letter to customers last week, the software giant is facing its most serious challenge to date on the desktop with the pending release of corporate enterprise Linux desktops from SuSE, Ximian, Red Hat and Sun Microsystems.

At the Enterprise Linux Forum last week in Santa Clara, Calif., SuSE demonstrated its first enterprise corporate desktop designed for large IT infrastructures. SuSE Linux Desktop costs $598 for a five-user license and comes with a five-year maintenance contract, said Holger Dyroff, general manager of Americas at SuSE. It offers a corporate GUI and a choice of running Sun's StarOffice 6.0 or Microsoft Office and starts shipping today.

Meanwhile, Ximian also demonstrated at the forum its enhanced Ximian Desktop 2, expected to begin shipping today. The Linux GUI is based on the GNOME 2 platform and incorporates an edition of that features support for Microsoft Office file-compatible documents.

$598.00 / 5 = $119.60 (no longer cheaper than Windows XP and has a support contract that isn't superior either.)

Good job SuSE, talk about being backwards.

Actually, I see this whole Linux thing as a future finacial bonanza for Microsoft. They will be able to sell kits to those that took the Linux plunge to help them switch back to Microsoft, and save as much of their DATA as possible. Yes, these companies will be coming to Microsoft on their knees demanding this kit because they realized too late that just because Linux sports an X-Windows type desktop, it isn't true point and click.

#5, is text editing all you do with your computer? Give me a break. There are more linux formats out there for files than you may realize. And then what about this? Reiser, ext2, ext3, etc....

And by the way, you do know this is not right?

X - I mastered Linux years before you ever even heard of it. My first distribution was SLS on 3.5" floppies. Why would I be intimidated by it?

I simply reject it as a solution, because it doesn't suit my needs.

#6 By 135 ( at 6/9/2003 4:23:17 PM
X- I've switched platforms over the years at least half a dozen times because the market direction dictated change. I agree, completely.

From what I've seen Linux is something that just doesn't have any large growth, at least not in any cutting edge way. It's just not where the market innovation is. If you're job is maintaining legacy systems, and you want to reduce your costs in that regard, then yes it makes a nice solution.

#7 By 135 ( at 6/9/2003 6:12:35 PM
#14 - Ahh, I should say legacy solutions. That's what IBM is selling Linux as, a solution to host your boring file servers, email servers, etc.

You do realize that google is an anomaly?
