  • WinInformant.com: Top Stories of 2001, #5: Linux Falters on the Desktop (2002-01-22 20:15:23)
    WinInfo's take on 'The Year That Was' in Desktop Linux: "But as 2001 came to a close, any hope that Linux would supplant Windows desktop versions ebbed right along with it. Linux isn't a disaster, of course; the OS commands a healthy percentage of the small-server market. But the one-time Linux steamroller has stalled at the Gates of Windows, and the fact that the desktop is one market Linux will never conquer has become increasingly obvious. Besides, if you want a desktop UNIX, Mac OS X is so much more elegant."

  • KDE::Enterprise: Interview with Conectiva (2002-01-22 13:09:32)
    "KDE is just the best desktop environment in existance for the linux market. Period. No other desktop solution comes even close to KDE's small learning curve and, perhaps more important, stability. That's the main reason why KDE has been so widely used in our corporate customers. As a linux-base company, we needed a desktop option when we offered our services to potential customers. KDE fitted right in."
