After trialling the beta version of SLED 10, I'm really impressed and want to purchase a license to show some support.
However, this would be the first commercial distro I've tried - I have a few questions and trying to find answers on the Novell site is like running in circles of market-speak.
Could anyone who has purchased a license from Novell before enlighten me on a few questions please?
1) Do I get access to the choice of x86 and x64 versions? Can I switch between them after downloading one?
2) How exactly is the license implemented - is it like XP where I can't complete the install or use it until I input an activation code? Or do I just need the license key to access online updates etc?
3) What happens when the 1 year license runs out? Do I lose access to security updates? What about normal updates?
4) Is there anything else about the license system that I need to worry about?
Many thanks in advance
