SuSE, openSUSE Microsoft's delay with the release of Windows Vista has left enough wiggle room for other players to pursue the desktop operating system market. An old Microsoft rival, Novell, is angling to seize the day with the release of SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, a desktop OS geared to beat Vista in cost, manageability and features.

Not Suse

I agree with Eugenia about Suse. I have recently been trying to choose which distro to throw on a laptop, and went through around a dozen before ending up with Debian. I waited for the DVD iso to be released before trying out Suse 10.1 and was amazingly disappointed. Not only was it quite slow in comparison to other distros (and I tried with both KDE and Gnome), Yast could not hold a candle to apt-get/portage/arch's installer. IMHO several other distros have a much greater chance of stealing away windows users.
