I have become a pretty keyboard-centric desktop user. I can manipulate almost all Windows OS windows/menus exclusively from the keyboard. It seems the SUSE desktops do not contain as robust a command set from the keyboard. Do you agree? I suppose it is possible that I am just not as familiar with Gnome/KDE. What plans are there to address this issue?

There is no GUI for OpenSwan. Hence, all client configuration must be done in a text editor. This is not good. Current GUI supports Cisco and Nortel Linux VPN clients but not OpenSwan. ;-( Until standards-based Ipsec VPN is configurable thru a GUI in SLED, SLED is essentially useless to a road warrior.

What is the process when designing the interfaces for your products? Are you only using studio-testing, or do you also make use of personas, paper prototyping and stuff like that? Also, do you have some good books to recommend for someone interested in usability/good interface design.

When the Gnome 'Computer' menu was unveiled for SLED 10, we heard much talk about usability studies and whatnot. When the KDE Kickoff menu appeared in openSUSE 10.2, there was more talk about usability, but with a radically different feature set and behavior. Is there going to be any work done to merge the 'usability features' of both menus, and ensure that a user in either KDE or Gnome gets a consistently usable main menu?

Is there any chance of a live cd. I have a new laptop, and I was going to dual boot between Windows and a distribution. I have tried various live cd's and they haven't loaded.I really like SLED, I use it a work, but am reluctant to go through the hassle of installing and then finding that I need to restore the hard disk.
