Novell and Ximian "Novell today is rolling out the newest edition of its flagship enterprise Linux, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11 and SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED) 11. The new releases are the first major updates since the SLES and SLED 10 releases in July of 2006. With SLES 11, Novell is also providing a baseline image so software vendors can easily build appliances. The concept is something know as a JeOS (Just enough Operating System) and has been trumpeted by Novell as the future of operating systems."

Actually it's 4.1.3 + patches to make KDE 4.1 usable for the average SLED customer. We have a version freeze point in the development cycle that dictates the choice to take 4.1.3. If you've seen openSUSE 11.1 you know how it looks, plus a few months more bugfixing.

The patches are
* branch patches making it largely equivalent to 4.1.4
* selected backports from KDE 4.2 such as
** Plasma layouting fixes
** PowerDevil
** NetworkManager-kde4
** all of kwin desktop effects)

Plus the usual default look and feel work, Aya as Plasma theme, Ozone windeco SuSE logo as start menu etc.
