Enterprise Linux: Novell rolls out Linux Desktop 9

"Novell Inc. has just announced details of its latest Linux offering for desktop computers. The software is to be known as the Novell Linux Desktop 9, hopefully to be shortened to NLD 9, and will be the first "Novell branded" Linux desktop offering supplied by the company following its acquisitions last year of open source favourites SuSE and Ximian.

The new desktop solution will be available from 12 November and will include a complete, tested and integrated, suite of open source tools built on top of the Linux platform. With interest in Linux as a desktop offering running at elevated levels Novell is keen to ensure that this offering is properly positioned in the market and the company is taking pains to try to ensure that it does not suffer from over-exuberant hype.

To this end Novell states that it does not see NLD 9 as an immediate threat to Microsoft's enormous desktop revenue stream. Instead the company believes that whilst many organisations could now employ NLD 9 as a mainstream business tool it is likely that enterprises will employ NLD as an opportunity to evaluate the potential usage of a Linux desktop. Novell trusts that making an early investigation of NLD will better position enterprises for future Linux desktop usage. It is interesting to note that Novell's internal Open Desktop Initiative now sees more than 85 per cent of its employees utilising the OpenOffice.org business productivity applications "full time"."
