And what's with this 'SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop' name? I thought that was the Novell Linux Desktop? Suse did have a similar product both before and during their sale to Novell, and it sold very poorly - just like every other enterprise Linux desktop...

It's possible Novell is changing the name Novell Linux Desktop to SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop (SLED). This would make sense since it can cause confusion for consumers trying to distinguish between NLD and SUSE Linux both of which are basically the same. This would also appear more professional with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server in combination with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop.
