Linux and Vista

Friday 16th September 2005

Category: News

First of all, there is an article on Linux Today discussing what Linux is about. The point is that, to many users, Linux is not a kernel, or a selection of packages - it is just the graphical interface, which, in most cases, turns out to be either KDE or Gnome.

We also have some information about the upcoming version of Windows, Vista. It turns out that we will be spoilt for choice - perhaps too spoilt - with seven different versions. There's the Starter Edition, Home Basic Edition, Home Premium Edition, Professional Edition, Small Business Edition, Enterprise Edition and Ultimate Edition. So which version is best the average person who just wants to browse the internet and play some games? Well... er... I have no idea! Don't forget that, on at least some versions, you also have the choice of graphical interface - the 'classic' look, XP look, Aero and Aero Glass. It's going to be fun trying to explain it to other people!
