Novell has corporately funded items of interest such as:
-Fspot
-Beagle
-iFolder
-Visual Basic macro support for OpenOffice.org
-the new menu in gnome-panel (codename the slab I believe)
-Xgl/compiz/x.org work

They even made it all work together seamlessly (in their products). Some of this software (like the slab) will not be released to the open source community until after they officially release Novell Linux Desktop 10, but so what.

Thanks to Novell, the Linux Desktop as a whole is improving from great hackers funded by them. Take a look at the blog of Federico:

Superhacker if you ask me.
