Well, you can't get that "start menu" Gnome panel object in Fedora (yet)...

But seriously, this is a good looking distro. I'm a little confused by the name though. "SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop" -- is this the new name for Novell Linux Desktop, or are they separate products? These screenshots -- with the "start menu" etc -- certainly look like the NLD10 preview we saw Nat give a few weeks ago...

Also, since when did SUSE use Gnome as default? That's going to rattle a few cages...

Actualy,... you can. Novell already put it to mainstream repositories for everyone to be available. As it did with YaST and iFolder.

What it makes most interesting for me in Novell Linux is AppArmour. After seeing the simplicity my jaw droped down on floor. And there is a benefit of supporting every app, not just compiled with support like SELinux needs.

Second fact where it is interesting is xen integration (and the packages that were not so ancient as in other distros). But since Fedora moved on 3.0 for FC5 there's no problem too, but I seriously hope AppArmour will be suported there.
