Novell Tuesday will begin shipping a desktop version of its open source Linux operating system aimed squarely at enterprise users.
Linux Desktop 9 is built on the same code base as SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9, a product used by a growing number of enterprises to run their back-office computers, Novell said Monday. The product, which will be available through channel partners, will cost $50 per system, which includes upgrades and updates for one year. To lure companies to the new offering, Novell has bundled several products, including its own version of OpenOffice, an open source based office application that is compatible with Microsoft's Office files.

My apoligies to everyone. I had to re-submit this story. Since the previous link was broken. It went straight to Novell. I think that it was a problem on thier end. Why this did not get placed on the home page, I do not know. I'm new at this. So I just ask for a little patience.
