Actually according to Novell, SUSE Linux is for Power users and Home use,
Novell Linux Desktop is for business use. Novell Linux Desktop is based on
SUSE Linux. So where is this coming from? Has the tune by Novell changed?
They are no longer going to support the home and power user desktop?

Serious question, as I know it caught me off guard since SUSE is one of the
3 that actually are viable for a home desktop system IMHO.
