HP to offer pre-installed Suse Linux for Businesses and Schools

HP has announced that it will offer pre installed SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop to business and education customers. This is great news for Novell and the OpenSource community. This pre installed version will come with all the essentials including Open Office, web browser, multimedia tools, email, team collaboration and instant messaging.

On the education front, HP said it’s working with Novell to develop and maintain 40 learning applications. They also announced the expansion of its virtualized browsing software.

As customers surf the web, changes made to the PC are contained in a
“virtual layer,” separate from the operating system, and do not
permanently alter the machine. Customers can therefore reset the
browser as needed, instantly returning the PC to its last-known good
state.
