Novell and Ximian According to a Novell confidential memo dated June 14, Novell is delaying its next release of both the server and desktop versions of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 "to address final issues with our new package management, registration, and update system and also fix the remaining blocker defects."

Actually the only troll is you.

Vista has been kept slipping. XP and Win2K3 were only released to fill the gap. And Vista _was_ aimed for 2003 but it slipped, and it slipped and it slipped and it slipped and it slipped and it slipped and ... you get the picture, right?


No, you're a cracksmoking moron if you think that XP were only released to fill the gap. But even in that time, desktop linux couldn't make up any ground and still sits at 2%. XP must not be so bad. You lose.

Linux market share appears to be above 4% (at least outside USA).

Linux on the Desktop is gaining on Windows year for year, so you lose, to use your "logic".

"Cracksmoking moron"? I might be a moron, but I don't smoke crack. Anyway, calling people names is quite offensive, wouldn't you say so?

It may be XP mustn't be so bad, but could it be that most persons don't know better, and just use whatever is preinstalled on the pc? And could it be that resellers have to pay a higher price for Windows if they don't preinstall on the pc's they sell?

When Windows98 was new it took quite a market share, and it wasn't because it was the best desktop OS at that time.

And what's all that lose-thing about? I didn't know this was a competition ;)

There was going to be a major new version of Windows after Windows 2000 that was going to end up being Vista, or even Blackcomb (the version after Longhorn). We got XP and 2003 instead, and Microsoft was confident we would get Longhorn in 2003 or 2004. You and they lost.

And once again, you people that live in these osnews fantasy worlds, are only too happy to make up whatever little stories that can pop into your demented little heads.

Lay off the koool-aid.

Longhorn was originally considered a stepping stone between XP & Blackcomb (Vienna). And it was originally given a release date of 2003.

Quit reinventing history :-)

TomK has been molested by Penguins too btw. Contact him if you need help.

Oh please. You and the other dorks have been circle-jerking each other for so long, you wish you could have a little kool-aid.

But it's so funny. Some kid in his basement can put together a distro with a decent package management system, but Novell fails once again.

Novell doesn't even produce anything. all they do is repackage. There's no hope for desktop linux with losers like that leading the effort.


I didn't even comment on Novell, I just corrected your revisionist view on Vista's original release date / purpose.

Seek help.
