Re: [K12OSN] Dell Offers Enterprise Linux Operating System from Novell to Address Growing Market for Thin Clients

Not a good way to do that, Moon.  Where do you think Warren Togami comes from?  You did notice that his email address ends in "@redhat.com", right?

The fact that Red Hat has stayed true to its Free Software roots (thus making CentOS possible) makes choosing Red Hat a no-brainer for me.  I don't see Novell sponsoring this list.  I don't see an educational/LTSP-ifyed version of SuSE Linux that is totally Free Software.  But I sure do see a Red Hat version of it.  It's called K12LTSP/K12Linux, specifically designed for--that's right--thin clients.  And Canonical's doing the same with Edubuntu.

Please remember to give credit where it's due.

Do you GNU?
Microsoft Free since 2003--the ultimate antivirus protection!

Sorry, wasn't intended to be. I'm well aware that Red Hat supports the Fedora and K12Linux projects, and not without significant return on investment mind you. I was just pointing out that Red Hat seems to keep slipping in key growth areas, like workstation, Thin Client, and other small-medium business solutions.  Novell is making choosing SUSE a no brainer choice by focusing on small-medium business solutions. I would really hate to see Novell overtake Red Hat in this Linux market. Hopefully Red Hat reads these posts and takes notice...

Making antagonistic and punitive statements are not constructive.
Fedora and K12Linux are sponsored by Red Hat, as is this list.
