SuSE, openSUSE Linux-Noob has reviewed SLED 10. "Novell's strengths are many, and I'm delighted to see the excellent work they have done in usability tests, and making the whole desktop feel like it's ready, ready to do business, and ready to serve its users. The development they've done with Beagle and in particular the 'computer menu' are fantastic and hopefully are just the start of better things to come."

While Ubuntu and other recent distros have been more poslished than ever, and they are quite nice, they are nice compared to other Linux distributions, but SLED 10 is probably the first distribution that I would rank as an overall "good desktop OS" along with XP and OS X. I would seriously consider it as a primary desktop if my primary machines were regular PC hardware, but instead I have and iMac and a MacBook, and am quite happy with OS X. While SLED 10 is good, and would probably convince me to switch from XP, it doesn't quite eclipse OS X as far as I'm concerned.
