Jeremy Allison wrote in to let us know about ZDNet's review of SuSE Linux 7.1. He writes:
The interesting thing is they say Linux is still in the minor leagues as a desktop OS and only recommend it for "Microsoft haters" and "cash strapped companies" but they give no *reasons* for saying this, other than "the cost of retraining from Windows would be prohibitive".
At the same time they praise Linux as a server.
As far as I can see this is a review done begrudingly by someone who is used to running Windows on their desktop, and doesn't want to learn anything new. Sigh.
Well at least Linux is getting reviews now. A few years ago it would have been ignored. Progress of a sort :-).
