Start-up's apps make desktop Linux easier

Author: JT Smith

"Linux is used on only 2% of all desktop PCs, compared with 92% for

releases Version 1.0 of Evolution, its open-source, Microsoft Outlook-like e-mail and calendaring software.

Ximian's founders hope that end users will flock to Linux on

graphical user interface (GUI), which is based on the
open-source GNU Network Object Model Environment
(GNOME), along with its Red Carpet tool for automating
Linux software management." Full story at ComputerWorld.
