Desktop Linux is a tall, but not impossible, leap

Linux on the desktop may the Holy Grail for open source devotees, but experts agree it's a tall order for the enterprise. In this interview, Frederick
H. Berenstein, co-founder, chairman and CTO of Xandros Inc., talks about some of the tangible challenges in moving from Windows to Linux on the
desktop. Xandros sells desktop software based on Debian Linux 4.0 and a Xandros-enhanced KDE 3.1.4 that includes 1.1. The company will
be announcing Xandros Enterprise Manager in January at LinuxWorld in New York, a product it hopes will further nudge companies toward Linux on the
desktop -- which Berenstein says would simplify migration and deployment services.
