Novell and Ximian Novell plans to release a beta for its Linux Desktop 10 including new features offering better interoperability with Microsoft Office and Open Office, said Ted Haeger, Novell's director of user communities, at the Southern California Linux Expo. The beta, tentatively scheduled for release next month, will include a new feature, dubbed Xgl. Haeger said Xgl will allow users to jump between screens and multiple desktops. Targeted to CAD software users, Xgl has a practical side that allows users to have better window- and file-sharing capabilities.

Who are you to question my integrity and motives for using free software? If you don't want it to be free, commercialize it. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

I can't speak for the other guy, but I'll be buying the next version the same reason. To support Novell.

I'm sure we can all agree that what Novell is doing is great. They're doing it for a few reasons, but one of them is to attract users. By attracting users they hope to glean monies. It's the nature of business. And they deserve it for what they're doing.

They're doing a good deed, and doing good work. It's not too much to ask that if you say you support free software, you SUPPORT free software.
