Bake-Off: 4 Linux Desktops Tackle The Enterprise
23 Mar 2007, CRN
The CRN Test Center recently reviewed four leading Linux desktop product for the enterprise. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 won 1st place!
Here’s an excerpt:
Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10
Of the four enterprise desktops, Novell appears to be the most serious alternative to Microsoft Windows. For almost a year now, Novell has been offering an enterprise-class Linux desktop that competes with Windows on many levels. However, as with other Linux desktops, SUSE suffers from a lack of drivers.
SUSE Enterprise Linux Desktop 10 ships with the Novell edition of OpenOffice. Novell’s OpenOffice code abides with the open-source license and is certified to work with SUSE. As with StarOffice’s Enterprise suite, Novell’s OpenOffice can run Visual Basic macros. Although Novell’s macro library does not cover all the VBA macros, many commonly used macros written for Excel and Word will run on SUSE.
