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.

As a Linux user who *does* care about the Linux desktop and is excited about what Novell is cookin' up, I ask, "Can you throw a dog a bone"?

How about a clip or two of XGL and the other cool things you're working on there? It's going to be tough to choose a desktop now that FC5 is including Mono. Maybe that would help me come down on the side of Novell ;)

Thanks for all the great work you guys do. Keep it up.

Regards,
Gabe

Well, I rather not steal the desktop team's thunder.

Just wait for a week, it will be worth it.

And yes, purchasing SUSE will help to continue the active flow of innovation coming from the Linux team at Novell.

now you're here, i'd like to ask a question ;)

for an outside observer (i'm not actively involved in gnome) it looks like all this money is poured into gnome, while it barely can keep up with KDE - would it not be far more efficient to put money on KDE? also considdering Red Hat is and has been throwing money on gnome, too - it would set Novell apart from the competition. and many ex-windows users seem to prefer KDE anyway...

just on technical merits, KDE seems ahead - isn't it better to build on stone than on sand?

i might be mistaken, but it looks like KDE 4 is gonna leave gnome far far behind anyway, why not go for the winning team?
