I have downloaded and installed the SLED 10 from Novell. The installer kind of sucks, it kept reporting that it could not locate a file needed for installation. I could skip it, but it was kind of disconcerting. Once it is installed it looks pretty and you can turn on the XGL desktop effects pretty easily so long as you have the appropiate closed source drivers from ATI or Nvidia. As soon as I can figure out how to add some repositories to the yast control center, it may be a good desktop OS. At the moment I cant figure out how to install mplayer and lame on it.
