Finally, both Red Hat and Novell is in total agreement – both of them thinks making money with Linux desktop is hard. According to Ron Hovsepian, CEO, Novell India Engineering:

The market for the desktop for the next three to five years is mainly enterprise-related.

As usual, I recommend Ubuntu Linux for both consumer Desktop and Laptop user:

  • Ubuntu will always be free of charge, including enterprise releases and security updates.
  • Ubuntu comes with full commercial support from Canonical and hundreds of companies around the world.
  • Ubuntu includes the very best translations and accessibility infrastructure that the free software community has to offer.
  • Ubuntu CDs contain only free software applications; we encourage you to use free and open source software, improve it and pass it on.
