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."

Great distro

SLED is one of the most polished Linux distributions I have ever used. The only real problem I see with it is such a small package selection and some of the goodies from gnome 2.14.

Ubuntu is not as polished as SLED, but it has over 18,000 packages in it's repositories. For that reason alone, my parent's computers will stay Ubuntu and I'll manually beautify them.

I will say that Yast in SLED has no open source rival in the Linux world as far as comprehensive management tools go. Maybe someone could download the source from http://developer.novell.com/wiki/index.php/YaST and start porting it to other distros.
