Desktop watchers who smell problems with Vista (see what Computerworld and eWeek are saying) need to keep tabs on what is coming down the pike from Linux – there are three desktop distributions that are really moving up. Checkout our personal favorite, Suse Linux 10.1 here. Developer colleagues say Ubuntu is just too darn good to pass up. And friends swear by (not at) Redhat Fedora. Reduce your desktop risk in case Vista bludgeons or bloats or just doesnt make cents – have Linux alternatives scanned and ready.
