Glad you liked the demo. I was the guy there at the booth showing off beta 6 of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10.
Some answers to questions in this thread:
- Yes, Novell Linux Desktop has been rebranded. It now bears the SUSE name.
- Yes, you will be able to use many of the same components I was showing at FOSE on SUSE Linux 10.1. Xgl certainly works on SUSE Linux 10.0 or 10.1
- Yes, Novell targets the Enterprise desktop primarily at business users.
- Yes, there are proprietary components in SLED10. They bear names like Adobe and Real, and we include them because our research has shown us that businesses want these components. But if you look at the pieces that Novell funds and develops--things like Banshee, F-spot, and the new Gnome menus--they're open source.
- Yes, other distributions will have Xgl, Banshee, etc. Many of their community forums already have extensive coverage on how to use these.
