Desktop Linux: Sun Shines
sjvn writes "Desktop Linux is good enough to supplant Windows in a number of enterprise desktop roles, and it has been for some time now. However, major enterprise Linux vendorsmost notably Red Hat Inc.have been too busy until recently with server-room Linux to produce desktop products with the sort of management frameworks and stable product road maps that enterprises require. That changed with the release last month of two desktop Linux variants from major enterprise players: Sun Microsystems Inc.'s Java Desktop System 2 and Red Hat's Red Hat Desktop."
