Right. I think it is Novell? That bought SuSe? And is trying to make it a standard corporate desktop OS, and seems to be failing miserably.
I remember this one company was being trained to use their OS and get rid of Windows but good luck on that....
The thing is, Windows isn't a bad OS! There are different types of users....
I use Windows for everything desktop related. I use Redhat/CentOS for all my heavy duty server related roles....
I want to get into Mac but haven't had the chance yet. I've also wanted to try Ubuntu but I haven't had time. I don't want to be watered down too much and try to know every OS that's out there...
Flash is very very visually impressive, I actually use Flash for my graphs but I want to get away from it and just use some type of GD or PNG/JPG type graphs, I just haven't found any that look BETTER than my Flash graphs...
