Cubicleware: Sun's JDS vs. Ximian XD2
Newsforge brings us: Cubicleware: Sun's JDS vs. Ximian XD2.
Sun JDS and Novell Ximian XD2 are not touted as general-purpose soup-to-nuts Linux distros. They are meant to be efficient and usable productivity desktops that can be quickly mastered by the non-technical workers who do the administrative heavy lifting in government offices, large universities, and in some big corporation settings. Both distros offer streamlined GNOME desktops with features reminiscent of recent versions of Windows that make it easy to find key applications like word processor and email client, and both attempt to mask large parts of the file system to make it easier for people to keep track of their files."
