SuSE, openSUSE Linux-Noob has reviewed SLED 10. "Novell's strengths are many, and I'm delighted to see the excellent work they have done in usability tests, and making the whole desktop feel like it's ready, ready to do business, and ready to serve its users. The development they've done with Beagle and in particular the 'computer menu' are fantastic and hopefully are just the start of better things to come."

I would seriously consider it [SLED 10] as a primary desktop if my primary machines were regular PC hardware, but instead I have and iMac and a MacBook, and am quite happy with OS X. While SLED 10 is good, and would probably convince me to switch from XP, it doesn't quite eclipse OS X as far as I'm concerned.

In terms of value for money, then, I guess SLED 10 does eclipse OSX?
I agree OSX is very polished and it looks good, I use an iBook G4 myself and I also like some of the programs preceded by i.
But I don't think the comparison is very useful.

Why not?
If I want to run SLED 10, I can download and install it for free on virtually any machine out there that isn older than say four years. If I want Mac OSX's somewhat superior eye candy, I have to buy a nicely designed but rather costly device, usually white and noteven technically superiour anymore, in order to get OSX running.

[I won't buy a Mac again, I'm a Gnome fan and I need Linux's quality, superior to OSX, in the field of multilingual input methods.]

You can also OSXify GNOME and KDE. I know it's not quite the same, but why not try it?

Google should give some nice results.

usually white

What?! You don't like white?! WEIRDO! ;-P
