Novell and Ximian A demonstration of the next release of Novell's Linux for desktops drew cheers and applause Wednesday, although the final version of the software is not expected for some months. Nat Friedman, the company's vice president of Linux desktop engineering, showed Novell Linux Desktop 10 playing videos and MP3 music files, and exchanging music and photos with an iPod and a digital camera, in a keynote presentation at the Solutions Linux conference and trade show on the outskirts of Paris.

you're right, linspire and novell's target customers are different and therefore so is their software offerings.

to wit, novell is targeting "enterprise" customers and linspire is targeting people who actually want to run linux on the desktop.

my original comment wasn't meant to be a tit-for-tat over features, but pointing out that "first linux to legally play mp3" is wrong. no matter who it is, i'm not a supporter of corporate misrepresentation.
