Can the governments of the world not do something about wintel? Fixing a formfactor to pricing and the chipmaker is involved ..... can you say Antitrust?

And that saved money goes to hiring more employees and increased training for our IT staff. Our CFO gets it. We are profitable and are expanding in this economic slump. Thanks to Linux, Apache/Tomcat and Java we are saving $3,000,000/year on licensing alone and we are more productive then we were with our old closedsource model.
I am sorry but I find that hard to believe.
Novell forces us to run SuSE 10 to run any of their services on Linux. We (us Linux admins that is) hate it. Please Novell just give us RPMs and we will install it on Red Hat or CentOS.
To get back on topic, I agree that Fedora 9 is whacked, so whacked in fact that we deployed CentOS 5.2 for our latest desktop image.
Only a sucker would pay for both these services and even attempt to have anything resembling a real life.
Digital downloads are still years off, especially since we can get better quality rips for free with no DRM.
Wake up and smell the JAVA Microsoft!
Actually we are a huge Novell customer and we try to avoid SuSE as much as possible. We have even gone as far as installing SuSE10, installing <novell product>, then ripping off the binaries and required libs and run it on CentOS.
YaST (not sure the version but it seems to reappear every now and then) has a documented bug (with Novell support) that if you just start YaST and do not change ANYTHING it will sometimes overwrite your custom changes. This is why we rename the yast binaries on all out SuSE boxen. Red Hat ditched Linuxconf years ago for this same reason.
YaST needs to die, it is bloated and buggy and a steaming pile of crap!
