In this extended review – “Linux servers battle for enterprise recognition” – InfoWorld compares four different and well-known Linux products dedicated to business environments, mostly for server use: Mandrake Linux ProSuite 9.1, Red Hat Linux Enterprise Server ES 2.1, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server and TurbolinuxEnterprise Server 8. Many tests, including load tests, have been performed on three different systems. This article underlines the overall excellent quality of all these Linux solutions, with notes from 7.6/10 (TurboLinux) to 8.4/10 (Mandrake).

SuSE and IBM secure Linux for the Feds
My friend works in a company that is currently getting some informations about Microsoft Solutions and SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8 Strengths en Weaknesses.
Could somebody tell me if this SuSE Solution is reliable and meets the requirement of such lerge business companies ?
The SuSE solution is reliable as to whether it meets the needs of any organization would have to be ascertained by the organization itself, organization size not withstanding.
They really have a great server product and I don’t think they should immidiately be dismissed by companies.
Mandrake gets a higher score because of GUI? I dont see how that is fair. Do any of you prefer GUI tools over command line?
its the best of the best. the others are quite good too.
who the hell needs a really nice eye-candy wallpaper for a server? even my servers at home don’t have monitors/keyboard/mouse. this is crazy. having worked for a marketing company for 2 years, i know they mess around with the numbers to show the “nice” numbers for their clients.
He seems to have chosen four distributions on the basis that they have either “Pro” or “Enterprise” in their name.
I’d prefer to use different criteria. For instance, Debian has a much larger stake in the server arena than TurboLinux and Mandrake (despite it not being called “Debian Enterprise”), so I’d say that would have been a more rational choice.
*cough* since it will take SuSE and IBM sometime to meet Solaris on the security standards front. *cough*.
Well a known fact… Linux is for home servers or something… I think it’s weird that someone tries to use Linux for more than what it is, hobby os
i will never trust someone that say that raid is supported through LVM (Linux Virtual Machine) that maybe is somenthing he invented since LVM is “Locical Volume Manager”…
no surprise he judged MDK the best, he is certainly used to have GUI in the M$ style…
