Long time fans of openSUSE Linux and its commercial big brother, Novell's SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop, will find a lot to like in this latest update.

Linux Journal: "The distribution is always of the highest quality with a professional feel and polish. Novell employs full-time developers to work on openSUSE and community projects, because many of the innovations first seen in openSUSE will end up in Novell's commercial SUSE Enterprise edition"
I have some questions regarding OpenSuse and Suse Linux Enterprise Server available from Novell.
(1) What is the difference between OpenSuse and Suse Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) ? I see there is a link to download SLES in the Novell site. Will we have to buy SLES after 60 days for us to continue to use that OS ?
The openSUSE 13.1 Linux distribution officially became generally available Nov. 19, providing users of the open-source software with a number of new features. openSUSE is SUSE's community Linux project that then feeds into development of the SUSE Linux Enterprise Server release. -
The openSUSE distribution is a stable, easy to use and complete multi-purpose distribution.
It is aimed towards users and developers working on the desktop or server. It is great for beginners, experienced users and ultra geeks alike, in short, it is perfect for everybody!
I have read that OpenSUSE is to "SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop" what Fedora is to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, but is there a document that explains this in more detail?
For example, from what version of OpenSuse is SLED 11 built? What are the update policies of the two distros?
