In the News Since it's nigh on impossible to produce accurate figures of operating system usage, we have to make do with figures that provide a rough estimate, at best. One such set of statistics are the figures from Net Applications, which tracks the 160 million monthly visitors to its hosted websites. The latest figures from January 2009 have been published, and they show that the rise of Mac OS X continues, as well as that of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Unsurprisingly, Windows 7 did quite well too.

It is clear from your posts that

a: you have never worked in an enterprise

b: you have never fully evaluated Linux, especially Opensuse

OSX is fine for a personal computer, or as a server for something like a youth group, but using it in a data centre ? c'mon



Unfortunately it is clear you are a bad judge of character because;

A: I have worked in many enterprises and continue to work in them.

B: I have not only evaluated Opensuse but contributed, as well. Also I have deployed Linux farms both Red Hat as well as SLES and frequently serve as a consultant for Solaris to Linux migrations.

However I will elaborate, why don't you educate me and show me an ENTERPRISE that is using Opensuse as the center of their environment. Directory, identity management, virtualization, email, monitoring tool not one part but in all cases. Again I said show me OpenSuse not SLES with the Novell add-ons since that is what you brought up. PLEASE show me the SOX and HIPAA organizations using Opensuse enterprise wide.

You are taking my comments and placing them in your perspective of discounting OpenSUSE when that is not the case. However center of the ENTERPRISE from a support standpoint it lacks the backing as well as the tools. Where is the competing product to Zenworks, where is the comparable Groupwise product. ( I am talking feature for feature) OpenLDAP is no edirectory, where is the identity management ENTERPRISE identity management. I suggest you brush up on ENTERPRISE tools. There is a difference between tools that can be used in an ENTERPRISE and ENTERPRISE class tools.

VirtualBOX can be used in a ENTERPRISE that does not make it VMWARE. Yes I know of Xen but I am being sarcastic.

See what you failed to realize is that I was speaking from an enterprise wide solution which Novell provides over support on their SLES platform. In fact they are the ONLY Linux vendor one with a comprehensive solution comparable to Microsoft on Linux.

I also suggest you search all my other posts here over the years and see that I have always been a Linux backer, as well as I am very proficient in Opensuse. However I am very honest in it's short comings.

I think the other person was winding you up because of what I said about OSX. Pity some people dont have their sarcasm detectors switched on before they post. I wouls have modded him down, but I have posted already.
