Well, at least one part is really easy to straighten out. NLD is not in any
way trying to grab grounds from SuSE Pro series, it's more like a "SuSE
Office version", aimed mainly to integrate desktops with Novell's eDirectory
based networks, whatever the server base is.

SuSE Pro series is not affected in any major way by the NLD version, it's
more of a "threat" to Windows as the desktop o/s.. :)
All of this is pretty clearly stated as well on the Novell website.

As for the SuSE Pro cycle, just wait and see.. :) What's the big hurry?
