I just purchased my first Linux distro back in October, SUSE 9.2 Pro,
and I've been very happy with it.
I'm not that familiar with all the Linux terms & apps, so I'm a bit
confused as to why Novell would buy SUSE when it now seems to be
putting out its own flavor , NLD. What exactly is all the Ximian apps,
it seems Novell bought them also?
if Novell stops SUSE at 9.2 and starts pushing NLD ( Novell Linux
Desktop) will everyone convert?
When I look at NLD, It says "Powered by SUSE@Linux". so, is NLD just a
GUI over SUSE, in place of KDE???
