More interesting news from Linux World...
Not sure if you guys are keeping up with the interesting dynamics in this
space, but it's pretty cool from my perspective (Novell guy). It was
announced yesterday that Wyse (manufacturer of thin client devices) is
working with SUSE Linux Enterprise to "bring the next generation of
Linux-based thin clients to market".
For those who are looking for a way to get Linux introduced into your
Windows-heavy environments, especially when it comes to "the desktop"...
thin clients (running Linux) make for a very compelling and relatively
inexpensive price/performance option. And because of the nature of thin
client model, you can get past alot of the typical objections to Linux on
the desktop in the corporate environment. Maybe a way to subtlety get Linux
in your environment?
Granted, thin clients are typically used for specific types of users
(transactional or fixed-function - call centers, bank tellers, etc.) and not
the general purpose knowledge worker, but I know of some organizations who
are even considering the general and remote users as well.
