Commentary: EDS, the giant computer services company, apparently doesn't like Linux much right now. EDS vice president of Global Alliances Robb Rasmussen recently told ZDNet Australia, "From a corporate perspective, we are not confident where Linux is right now today. A large enterprise needs to be sure because it relates to securifying [sic] the environment. We see some of the same things occurring that did to Unix -- it could splinter into many different types of languages. We are quite cautious about Linux and its deployment." Uh huh. But companies that issue anti-Linux statements like this often end up embracing Linux before long. That's why I want to extend a welcoming hand to EDS instead of getting upset over that egregious statement.

Confused by GRUB? Troubleshooters.com has published a "quick-start" guide about to the GRUB (GRand Unified Bootloader) Linux bootloader. According to Steve Litt, author of the guide, desktop Linux users are seldom familiar with their bootloaders, resulting in a big problem if their hard drive's MBR (master boot record) is overwritten. "Most grub documentation is difficult for those not familiar with grub," says Litt.

In the last couple of years, the development teams of the various desktop environments, such as GNOME and KDE, have made great strides in the right direction to making the Linux desktop more attractive and visually pleasing. Just with a standard KDE install, I get the occasional "Hey, that looks nice" from friends. When I discovered a program named Karamba for KDE a while back, that suddenly changed to outright "Wow!"
