Yeah, but 60 days....IMHO it´s too short for a serious test

It is 60 days (2 months) of free updates, which gives you chance to update
system to current status. You can test system long after that period, but
there will be no security and other updates.

Also, what kind of serious test is the one that has no specific goal, which
means you plan what functionality has to be tested, and focus on that tests
with user training and feedback channel setup ahead of installation.

Sixty days period is short only for tests trough random use of applications,
or for those that want to test ad nauseum, ie. to have free use until they
need actual technical support.

Besides, it is actually 120 days, according to the:
http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/eval.html
as you can extend evaluation period once for each product.

Compare that with other offers on the market.
