SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop slated for June

SuSE Linux AG now plans to ship its SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop operating system in June, a delay from original plans to ship it during the just-ended first quarter.

SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, which is in beta testing now, will cost $129 per desktop, although discounts would apply to high-volume purchases, Rafael Laguna, SuSE's marketing vice president, said yesterday.

The Nuremburg, Germany-based company's Linux Enterprise Desktop would be its third desktop operating system, joining SuSE Linux, the entry-level member of the family aimed at individual users, and SuSE Linux Office Desktop, which is aimed at small offices with its networking and disk-partitioning capabilities, Laguna said.

With many companies using Microsoft Corp.'s Windows as a client to SuSE Linux's server operating system, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop will offer those companies the option of also running SuSE software on the desktop, Laguna said.
