Nat Friedman, the company's vice president of Linux desktop engineering, showed Novell Linux Desktop 10 playing videos and MP3 music files, and exchanging music and photos with an iPod and a digital camera, in a keynote presentation at the Solutions Linux conference and trade show on the outskirts of Paris.

Member since:

desktop permissions? you mean something like KIOSK? that's in Novell's offering, tough it only works for KDE apps. or you mean stuff like ACL? again, only KDE afaik. but gnome will catch up.

anyway, novell is putting a lot of work in server-related stuff, and i guess they spend time thinking about corporate needs like KIOSK and ACL's, so they will end up in gnome - after some time. or the companies buying Novell/Suse will just continue to use KDE ;-)
