Red Hat Red Hat announced a new client product, Red Hat Global Desktop, at its annual Red Hat Summit tradeshow in San Diego. This move is designed, in part, to compete with Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 Desktop, which has achieved success in business desktop markets, and with Ubuntu 7.04, which will soon appear on Dell PCs. Some reporting about this can also be found at the company's magazine. Update: Elsewhere, talking security with Red Hat's Mark Cox.

People don't really use local tools anymore? That's just crazy talk. I think most people use a mix of online and local tools, I don't see any big takeup of online office apps, Real graphical work needs local processing, I really wouldn't want to send that 700Mb .psd file across the interweb for storage, and I certainly don't want a web-based IDE. Ripping DVDs/CDs, burning DVDs/CDs, video editing, all stuff that should be done locally, at least for the forseable future.
