Novell and Ximian Novell has begun a new element of a years-long effort to coax people away from Windows and toward Linux. It unveiled a Web site Friday that touts purported advantages that Novell's Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 has over Windows Vista. The site includes a white paper making the case, a variety of customers who have opted to use the software, and a video arguing that SLED has good usability and a built-in office suite but not Windows' lock-in and high licensing costs.

Their points are horrible

It is easy to say that you are better than your competition when you outright lie in your press breifings.

Their points on why you should buy their software instead of using Windows was at best a fanboy write up.

It sounds like a ton of FUD and misinformation directed by some of the linux fanboys on this website.

For example:

Windows does not come with Office, but theirs comes with open office. Well duh! You can download the same thing for Windows for free and hardly using any bandwidth.

Yet, there are tons of software that I can run on Windows that they can not.

Wow, amazing.
