  1. I noticed that this is the RC3 available for download. When the gold master happens will updates be provided from the RC’s to the final product? Will those be free? Will SLED 10 be available as a free download without support? What are the official policies? Also, can we get this announcement into the Novell Open Audio podcast with answers to my questions? BTW – the videos introducing SLED 10 that you were in Ted were very nice, but try to be a little less facially expressive next time (it seems a little too forced).

  2. I’d also like some more info. Is there a livedisk available? I’d love to try this out, but I’m hesitant to wipe my precious Ubuntu to do so.

  3. Also, what’s going on in this screen shot? Is that some sort of Expose type thing? :O

    Ugh. I didn’t realize that the team had used such a bad screenshot. I just sent the team a new version. But now I have looked at the source page. All the screenshots are less than optimal to show off the desktop’s sleek look and feel, and it’s cool applications.

    But, yes, the feature you ask about is very similar to the Macintosh exposee feature. By hitting the pause button, all the open windows scale down and arrange so that you can pick the one you want to come to the forefront.  I’ll see about blogging that, too.

  5. Sweet.

    I just got the famed Novell “Computer” menu installed and working on Ubuntu, and it is pretty slick. I have reclaimed a large chunk of space on my gnome panel.

    Things would feel a lot more integrated if the menu searches appeared *on* the menu instead of popping up in their own window. I guess that’s not a huge deal, though.
