One question which I cant seem to get answered. If you go with Linux what happens with the motherboard drivers which are Windows oriented? Also what happens to the onboard audio and video?
I am sure that real Linux heads will have a great time writing their own. But i gave up programming years ago and have no intention of starting in with it at this point in time!
Novell's stock is up 2.5% on the following news. Thankfully I've been holding 500 shares of it,...and holding,...holdning...holding...seems forever for some good news to rescue it, LOL.
Anyway the good news is the latest release is soon to hit the store shelves for the Novell's SUSE Linux software based on improvements to the SUSE Linux software it inherited by acquiring SUSE Linux.
On the other hand, it seems expensive enough, and for an "open source" type software, that I hardly see how it will compete equally with Microsoft Windows offerings in the retail outlets. The upgrade is about $40 cheaper and the full version is about half of Microsoft's, so maybe it will compete well.
