[LWN subscribers only content] Last week we pointed out the bizarre press release from Green Hills Software which tries to paint free software as a Trojan horse that will hand control of U.S. defense systems over to the Chinese and Russians.

Open software standards and interfaces remain widely misunderstood and misrepresentative claims by technology companies continue to be the norm, not the exception.
Could it be that Microsoft's core business, the Windows operating system on desktops and laptops, is really under threat from Linux? "I think it's inevitable," says AJ McKee, the public relations officer for the Irish Linux Users Group (ILUG), an organisation that supports the open source operating system in Ireland. "I think that the sheer number of developers working on Linux, constantly improving it, means that it will eventually become much more widely adopted."

The Linux firms hope to sell businesses a single, companywide software platform for both servers and desktops. [Thanks to DesktopLinux.com for the link.]
Over 750 Applications Now Certified on Red Hat Enterprise Linux; Red Hat Launches Online Solutions Catalog with Intel for Customers Seeking to Deploy Enterprise Linux Solutions.
Commercial vendors and Linux distributors are listening to the masses -- and fueling the hype -- with plans to shore up a viable Linux desktop solution for the enterprise. IBM, for one, has made noise about moving to Linux on its desktops internally. Sun has released its Java Desktop System and Novell/SuSE and Red Hat have also made some rumblings lately about renewing their commitments to a Linux desktop. Novell has already brought in a couple of heavyweights with its acquisition of Ximian last year and SuSE Linux AG in January. Not only did Novell snare the popular Ximian technology, but it brought aboard luminaries Nat Friedman and Miguel de Icaza. Friedman will deliver the keynote at this week's Real World Linux Conference, and in this interview, he discusses Novell's commitment to the Linux desktop, barriers, misconceptions and the importance of success stories.
