Linux desktop rallying cry



Over at Desktop Linux there’s an opinion piece that’s really a rallying cry for the linux desktop. He looks at what is promised in Vista and tries to discern what will really be different than we currently have on the Windows platform. Looks at the potential expense and concludes that now is the time for linux vendors to REALLY be making a push.



He makes some points about where desktop linux can improve. He also notes that desktop linux is improving. Apparently about 1% of corporations are using linux on the desktop with that expected to rise to over 3% by 2008. That strikes this columnist as low. Frankly I would think so too. The one thing about linux in a corporate environment is that it would be easy (and cheaper) for an IT department to deal with standardized software across all desktops running Linux than Windows. Depending on the approach older hardware could be used as well without the 2-3 year chuch the hardware out the window cycle.
