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.

With that being said, there are still deficiences; for example, I've moved back to Windows XP because it is impossible to surf the net and rip a cd at the same time - soundjuicer sucks up all the CPU and the internet slows to a crawl; I've yet to experience that problem running Windows XP + Intels latest drivers.

Add that to the list of applications that end users need, its not just a simple tasking of picking up, replacing and carry on working - its a whole lot more complex than that; like I keep repeating, businesses do more than just type out letters.
