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.

I always enjoy the remark: "Linux is free if your time is worthless".

Well Windows isn't free if your time is worthless. Buying a new computer to run it isn't free either.

OK... maybe free for lucky winners. But frankly I haven't won anything lately. Have you?

Whether its learning the new APIs, navigating menus, figuring out why your apps wont work, or performing ritual clicking exercises on security prompts; there is a certain learning curve people will face.
