SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 from Novell named 'Best Linux Desktop'

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Jan. 4, 2007 -- Novell today announced its SUSE(R) Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 has earned a 2007 InfoWorld Technology of the Year Award, being named "Best Linux Desktop." According to InfoWorld, "Novell's revamped desktop Linux* distribution combines professional fit and finish with unique usability features not available from other vendors. ... A class act, [SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop] 10 gives business users new reason to consider Linux for enterprise desktops."

The InfoWorld award is the latest significant honor for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10. It was named "Best of Show" and "Best Desktop Solution" at August's LinuxWorld in San Francisco, and Novell's Nat Friedman received the first-ever VARBusiness "Technologist of the Year" award in October for his role in developing the innovative Linux desktop. InfoWorld's annual awards recognize the top technology sectors that matter most to enterprise IT, as well as identify the best and most innovative enterprise products that have fundamentally altered the IT landscape. Winners are selected by InfoWorld test center analysts based on innovation and effectiveness.

Carlos Montero-Luque, Novell(R) vice president of product management for Open Platform Solutions, said, "The ongoing praise for SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop from reviewers, customers and other industry watchers is testament to Novell's commitment to listening to customers and solving their problems. It also means we've successfully created the Linux desktop that seamlessly combines substance and style, with the cost and reliability benefits that enterprises need and the innovation users demand."

SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 shipped in July 2006 and has been downloaded nearly half a million times. It is a complete desktop computing solution that dramatically reduces costs, improves end-user security and increases workforce productivity. SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop is suited for complete desktop replacements, retail point of service solutions, thin-client deployments and engineering workstations.

The Technology of the Year Awards are highlighted in the Jan. 1 issue of InfoWorld. For more information about SUSE Linux Enterprise offerings from Novell, visit
