Group to push Linux for desktop computing - Computerworld Jeremy White, interim chairman of the consortium and the CEO of Codeweavers, said the idea gained support late last year after casual talks among members of the open-source community. A 90-day timeline is now in place, with the goal of bringing in OEMs and major technology companies to give it a broad reach, he said. I applaud Jeremy's effort here. Codeweaver's product is pretty good give it a whirl if you run Linux. The one thing I would like them to post are productivity metrics for people using Crossover, maybe this would help organisations make the switch where it makes sense if productivity is the same at a cheaper cost...
