Novell and Ximian The high costs of migrating from Windows XP to Windows Vista will be the catalyst that encourages more companies to seriously consider moving to desktop Linux, according to open source and networking company Novell on Monday.

I just installed Ubntu 5.10 beta with no problems on a eMachines laptop, a IBM thinikpad, and a two Dell Percison workstations, a newer 3.0 GHz, and a couple year old 2.4 Ghz.If you were haveing issues with 4.10 (some-what common), or 5.04 (i have never had any) you should try 5.10. It seems to be working very well for my clients. It also loaded it on a brand new powerbook, no issues.

I provide Ubuntu support to many people as a consultant (it is the only distro of linux we support) and have seen no evidence of problems on "mainstream pre-built computers"
