Novell has released SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, based on version 10 of SUSE. The OS has support for all standard network and printing protocols, as well as Active Directory compatibility, Microsoft Exchange compatibility, and support for Novell’s Groupwise and Lotus Notes and Domino. The company claims that it has worked hard on usability testing, and has thrown hundreds of usability tests at the desktop.

'With SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, we are now positioned to address the sweet spot of the market, the general office worker. This desktop is already generating great interest in businesses of all sizes, and it represents a tremendous new opportunity for Novell,' said Jeff Jaffe, CTO for Novell.
