I have personally tested this product and its no RHEW. The difference between this and slapping te free parts on top of fedora when available is that NLD will (IMO) be the first true COMMERCIAL linux distro DESIGNED to be a business desktop, with desktop users in mind. RHEW doesnt count cause its just a different package selection from RHEL, you can say MAYBE something like Mandriva..but again not really designed with a business desktop in mind. I think that this will have a much stronger impact than alot of techies give it credit for. Its really the first honest stab at creating a commercial linux desktop that may actually have a chance. If the pricing follows the same as NLD9 I will be preordering several copies. Sure you could do it with any distro, but could you do it with style...and then get commercial support for it? I think not....I say 2thumbs up for NLD10 and to Novell...
