Linux Desktop PC
Linux, a very popular operating system has been gaining a lot of ground in the desktop PC market lately. Linux already a strong player in the enterprise and server market continues to grow at a steady pace. Every year, I hear more buzz talk about the integration or introduction of new product lines using various Linux distributions by vendors and computing professionals trying to break away from the grapples of Microsoft Windows.
Recent events has convinced me that 2008 will be a good push forward for Linux desktop users.
Dell will offer Ubuntu Linux 7.10 on its XPS 1330 laptops, while Sears.com is selling a fully equipped Linux desktop PC for $299, minus a $100 rebate. SecurityOrb.com, has also started offering Linux-based security desktop on their site and lastly Lenovo has launched a range of laptops pre-installed with Novell's SuSE Linux operating system.
There are many different flavors of Linux such as Ubuntu, Redhat, SuSE, Slackware and Fedora. For a comprehensive list, description and download information check out: http://www.securityorb.com/LinuxDistributions.html
These are just a few of the recent Linux based desktop PC news that has passed my way, but there are countless and more to come as well.
