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.

Any Windows sys admin who sees the level of graphical management tools on those so called enterprise Linux distributions compared to what they're used to,

In this post, I perceive that you are saying that Windows 2003 server has better GUI admin tools than RHEL.

That may very well be true. Windows admins love their GUI admin tools and usually act like fish out of water when those are taken away from them. They tend to quit their jobs before they actually suffocate and die, though. ;-)

I'm sure that GUI admin utilities are a top priority for MS.

But writing good gui tools is about 95% dealing with (differences in) config files and about 5% handling the GUI. It hardly makes a difference whether you are using Gnome, GnuStep, or Tk.

I'd look elsewhere than the DE tools for the reasons that explain any disparities that might exist.
