What it even makes it sadder that the demoed MP3 player is really not the best that there is on Linux.

Amarok is by far the better (al be it subjective from my side :-) mp3 player...

But what is interesting is that they have decided to include a MP3 decoder from the start. And that IS news. There's no linux distribution at the moment that plays MP3 out of the box...

And the desktop? Novell should have choosen KDE. Than they could really shine on the desktop and present some inovative applications.

A Windows user will laugh us in the face when you present him with the default Gnome burner app... But with K3B he/she will feel comfortable...

Ok. Well. Maybe in a few years.... If Google wants to help.....
