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.

That's a bit over the top.

Windows is properly managed and administered across thousands of organisations with greater numbers than that. I've worked simultaneously at two over the past two years where more or less there's relatively little administrative effort and costs compared to other parts of the infrastructure.

With the appropriate processes, controls and support models it's not all that difficult to do. Certainly not worth crushing any part of your anatomy.
