Novell and Ximian Novell might have signed a patent and interoperability deal with Microsoft Corp but it is not about to give up competing with the software giant and last week released a study that suggests its Linux desktop product is better value than Windows Vista. The company's competitive guide compares SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop with Windows Vista and claims that the Linux product provides 90% of Vista's functionality and 10% of the price.

Linux provides very good replacements for a lot of Windows applications but there is still some specialty software out there that doesn't have a Linux equivalent.

The opposite is also valid.Correct me if i'm wrong but Nero burning still isn't compatible with Vista.So k3b doesn't have a windows competitor at the moment.
