How does the beagle integration in SLED compare to spotlight (OS X)? That would have been worth exploring in the article perhaps? As it stands this article tells me nothing I didn't know about beagle, and nothing I didn't know about SLED. Except that he claims that SLED's implementation is the best bar none, but without giving any indication as to why.

One has to look at the bigger picture, in respects to SLED; the big problem that comes to MacOS X and the enterprise is the lack of long term support, a roadmap that has some vague direction as to where MacOS X is going; lets assume those two are corrected in Leopard, then next issue is, that companies will face; is it hardware upgrade time?

For SLED, the basic question which companies need to ask themselves is whether the cost of migrating to SLED can be matched by an improvement in productivity OR whether a move to Vista could yield similar results and a lower costs.

SLED does have a future in the enterprise, but what it needs are better RAD tools, and more ISV support.
