Hello!

Have you heard of an operating system called SUSE Linux Enterprise
Desktop?

It's a stable long term supported distribution with over 5 years of
support, and as an 'Enterprise' product supports a very wide range of
hardware, including generally older hardware.

It's available under an annual subscription model, costing $50 a year

Yup, bought that too, but was all Gnome and didn't even keep up with the timely
releases of office suites we bought it to run.

There might have been a reason it was all Gnome, since that was back in the
KDE4 wars era. Could be suse was smart enough not to eat it's own dogfood.

It was generally regarded as a rip off by those customers who ended up using it.
