A vista of Apples, penguins and more

Let me share a tale of woe on how worlds collide.

Sadly, I gave up trying to use 2 different Vista Release Candidates during 2006; I couldn't get openVPN to work. Meanwhile, Vista kept (re)adding those obtrusive and uncooperative boot menus that Microsoft deems we all need.

Instead, I went and installed a Linux desktop. I chose SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop because of the general level of buzz plus the higher likelihood that businesses may try this (business-oriented) distro. If you're interested, Novell tells me it's free to download and use (without a support subscription). So far, the results have been better than I expected.

So, what's the rub? How do these worlds collide?
