Readers Respond: A Linux Distro Windows Users Can Love

By eweek  |  Posted 2006-08-23

Bravo on Jason Brooks review of Novells SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 ["A Linux Distro Windows Users Can Love," Aug. 14].

I agree with just about everything he said, except I installed SLED as a virtual machine on a Dell laptop—an XPS with an Intel PRO/Wireless 2015 on board. The Novell OS was very inconsistent in finding the card and allowing the card to be used, so access to the Internet was spotty, at best. I had the same issues with Ubuntu 6.06, so I have sadly come to the conclusion that wireless and Linux are estranged lovers at best.
