Mandriva 2008 VS Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon

,----[ Quote
| Well, finally, what can be said? Both distributions have their pros and cons.
| Mandriva has recently consolidated its product lines and offers, allowing
| users afraid to be on their own the reassurance of paid for support while
| leaving a very convincing offer available to free software users, while
| Ubuntu is appearing more and more often pre-installed on consumer computers—
| and version 7.10 should be even easier to pre-install.

QuickBooks For Linux

| Yes! Linux PLEASE! We have completed an evaluation of the latest Ubuntu
| distribution of Linux, version 6.10 ("Edgy"), and we believe it is not only a
| better business desktop than Windows XP, but once a few (free) items such as
| Beryl are added in it is superior to Microsoft Vista. Ubuntu would be our
| business desktop of choice, but the main item holding us back is Quickbooks.
| I am sure this is true for many generic business desktops.

Hopefully they watch this. Intuit and Microsoft.


Intuit QuickBooks Enterprise Enters Linux Fold

| The move acknowledges that Linux has found a home in some business

| That now changes.
