It's a customized version of SuSE that includes office/productivity

It appears to be a specialized version of SuSE Linux that targets the
workplace. Most workplaces don't need TuxRacer or Kaffeine or Xine or
K3b. It looks like this version removes these apps and focuses more on
the apps that buisiness people use... Word Processors, Spreadsheets,

It's also preconfigured out of the box to let Admins set restrictions
and security policies on the "Linux Desktop" systems along with the
tools that do that. It also has better integration with LDAP, Active
Directory and other environments that are likely to already be in
