to let us know about ZDNet's review of SuSE Linux 7.1. He
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 :-).
