Can Novell Make Linux Pervasive on the Corporate Desktop?
"Powered by SUSE Linux," can NLD9 become the corporate desktop offering of first choice?

  • Microsoft Buys Off Novell, CCIA Antitrust Complaints; Novell To Sue over WordPerfect

    "Powered by SUSE Linux," can Novell Desktop Linux 9 become the corporate desktop offering of first choice? This was the question being asked throughout the industry as Novell yesterday announced that NDL9 would be available through its channel partners from November 12 at a price of $50.

    "With this offering, the enterprise software maker is taking the first - albeit very early - steps towards the pervasive Linux desktop in the enterprise, something that is happening slowly but being watched with much anticipation on a world stage," said LinuxWorld's Mark Hinkle as Novell released its desktop offering yesterday - as in, its first "Novell branded" offering, made possible of course by last year's acquisitions by the Utah-based company of both SUSE and Ximian.

    "Novell will likely follow Red Hat's lead by looking for the low-hanging fruit in the form of UNIX workstation converts first," added Hinkle - who has written extensively about Linux on the desktop in his capacity as Desktop Technologies Editor of LinuxWorld Magazine.

    Hinkle went on to explain that by virtue of the SUSE and Ximian acquisitions in 2003 "Novell has acquired well respected products and resources that will set the stage for task-based or transactional workers to adopt Linux on the desktop and eventually the 'holy grail' - the average knowledge-worker."

    Hinkle continued:

    "The Novell Linux Desktop has made some interesting choices by including the FireFox Web browser, which has garnered accolades on both Linux and Windows even though the 1.0 version isn't due out until November 9th."

    "Also, with the Novell Linux Desktop 9 release we start to see the 'Powered by SUSE Linux' tagline referencing the build system that allowed SUSE to release on multiple platforms quickly will also allow all Novell Linux products to come from one solid centralized codebase. Overall, this is one of the most encouraging products in the business desktop we have seen in years."


    Would-be users can download an "eval" copy, after some registration - it's 3 ISO files. According to Novell's Luis Villa, who joined Novell along with Ximian, "NLD9 is based on SUSE 9.1, with the addition of GNOME 2.6 (plus 9.1's KDE 3.1), red carpet, and some Novell bits like iFolder and the Groupwise Instant Messenger code that is now in GAIM and Kopete."

    "It also has what feels like a zillion bug fixes and some features that my team put together," added Villa. "SUSE also did a ton of work for us, losing even more sleep (thanks to the time difference), working with us on some KDE changes, and all kinds of other bits about teaching us the ins and outs of how a distro works."

    "We also have source available," Villa pointed out. "You're welcome to poke through it; some of the changes have already gone upstream and more will get into 2.9, we hope."

    "There is a lot of other stuff around novell.com - Novell's 'cool solutions' folks, for example, have a page of stuff up. I'm totally psyched about this," enthused Villa.

    So did Chris Stone leave Novell then because this release was already done and dusted, and he was ready to move on to new open source achievements?

    Hinkle went on to explain that by virtue of the SUSE and Ximian acquisitions in 2003 "Novell has acquired well respected products and resources that will set the stage for task-based or transactional workers to adopt Linux on the desktop and eventually the 'holy grail' - the average knowledge-worker."

    Yeah that's the sweet spot alright. Office drones. This could be something really big if Novell have gotten it right.

    This version is for use in big business by general knowledge workers. Its features are maintainability and stability of pachages, not end-user "featuritis." In other words, it's for corporate desktop drones. It's designed to work best in a corporate environment, of course complementing Novell's upcoming Open Enterprise Server. It's timed to match the upcoming release of that product.

    On the page Villa references at novell.com is a paper containing a concise description of the key features, and showing why Novell thinks it's ready for enterprise deployment.

    Here's the direct link.

    It's really encouraging to see industry heavyweights starting to give Windows some competition. Not only will it enrich the user's set of choices, it should also result in a better Windows for those who do choose to use that system.

    My bet is that the death gong for Windows will sound when Google releases a Linux desktop.

    The corporate world started way back when with Windows PCs and Microsoft Office. Any Unix desktops are specialized applications, such as Graphics Design and Virtual Simulations (Unigraphics, HP-UX, SGI, IBM AIX.) They pay for these systems (in the 10 thousands each) because they are good at what they do and there is a company that stands behind them. If it weren't for these systems, everything would be running MS Windows. And it would be safe to say, any company running Macs will not migrate to Linux, because Macs are now more affordable (as compared to their Unix counterparts,) Unix based, and are already in niche markets.

    So I would say, if they are going after corporate desktops, they are going after MS Windows, because this is where the PC is. Linux will also allow better integration with existing and vested Unix and Mac systems.

    No, they are going after MS Windows. Their "not-going-after-Windows" statement is for investors and people who manage tech, but not into tech and understanding tech from the ground level, so as not to still certains waters that Microsoft is monitoring.

    $50 is a nice "entry level"/evaluation price, but OpenOffice isn't nearly a polished product nor does it have many of the "needed" features that MS Office currently has. OpenOffice is suitable for the very small business/SOHO with limited resources/needs. Unfortunately, these same people don't often have access to the IT resources needed for Linux/OpenOffice training--and despite what most Linux gurus say/think, the average person (mom/dad/grandma/grandpa/brother/sister) CAN NOT install Linux and those that say their mom has done it are simply lying in order to further their "cause".

    Perhaps Novell can help in providing more legitimacy toward linux desktops to the Corporate World. It's not that linux desktops geared toward corporations haven't been around, but more the lack of a Name Brand company to trust purchasing it from. I'm being hopeful, but any amount this release can cut into Microsoft's market share is good for us all.

    A trim desktop for the corporate drone is exactly what the market needs. Sun is sort of trying to do it with JDS, but they're selling it as one desktop for every kind of corporate user. The lean desktop with only necessary packages that's easily maintainable is what a lot of companies need if they're going to slowly switch away from Microsoft. It eases headaches and drastically cuts administrative costs. I hope Novell is very smart in the way they market it.

    Is it Novell's Linux distro, or is it Novell's desktop package? Just another distro doesn't excite me, no matter how well thought out it is.

    What I want to see from these guys is built-in Netware logon support, eg a KDM or GDM auth module with drive mapping and all the rest. Something that can be rolled out on an LTSP infrastructure with diskless clients. Something to easily replace the thousands of Windows PCs so many schools and businesses are running with Novell's servers.

    It's based on Suse 9.1

    Actually, it's built on SLES 9

    It's based on Suse 9.1, but it will be interesting to see what changes the Ximian guys have added to it. The timing seems a bit weird though as Suse 9.2 just came out. Novell's strategy will be something to watch, to see how they position Suse Server, Suse 9.2 and Novell Linux between homes and offices.

    When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
