As a community we would like to see a large computer manufacturer sell PC's with Linux already on them. Is this the only option?
The new general public licence has arrived. Paul Furber celebrates the Great Leap Forward of 2006.. "As you are aware from your compulsory weekly education classes, the old general public licence has resisted all attempts to overcome it. Many have tried. All have failed. Millions of companies have gone bankrupt trying to make money from it and over 100 governments have collapsed trying to oppose it -- which is, of course, just as we intended."
Daniel M Harrison's take on what is really going on with Google and Sun.. "Anyone who thinks Google can continue its phenomenal growth without a platform to combine hardware, storage, StarOffice, JAVA, and Solaris ought to think again - the combinations are the only competitive advantage that can enable them to trade at a P/E of 100 - and perhaps way above."

Columnist Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols thinks he has found a pattern in Novell's pursuit of the enterprise desktop. For a while, Novell has produced great Linux desktops, like OpenSUSE, he writes.

I've been running the retail version on SUSE Linux 10.0 as my production desktop machine since early November. I like its online update facility; it's a great way to keep the system refreshed with the latest security and bug fixes, and I'm not the only one who feels this way. But I've found a few things in SUSE 10 that I'm not too fond of, and that make me start thinking about changing distros. (I can understand why he feels this way, then again I use KDE so I missed out on most of what he doesn't like. - Scott)
