Is that bad? Seems like a wonderful way to draw in new users."Sometimes life is just what we make it."

on one hand, it is good in that it will help draw in newbies. OTOH, there is a Linux app to do the same things with.How do you set this laser printer to stun??

ahh this will give SUSE a lead on the desktop market..... also a quick adoption of Linux for the users out there.. on my work site a lot of users could use Linux they mainly use office, altought It would be difficult for some users the access policies the company handles would be a lot easier on linux.. on my part i could use linux for some task but not all we use Illustrator a lot, I tried to get an application that could do the same job, actually is opening the AI files, making some changes and converting them to PDF for common general use, but I have a CAD software that is only written to Windows no linux port yet, and I doubt a port to linux soon.. it buggy enough on windows ....someone is more skilled than you!

I can see the sense in it for business migrating to Linux, since they may already have a hefty investment in seat licenses and user training for many programs the crossover plugin runs.
On the other hand, for home users who use a computer mainly because of these programs and have no need of advanced Linux features, instead of getting a $39 compatibility layer so that Windows applications work reasonably well in Linux, why not get a $60 OEM licence for XP Home and have everything work the way it was designed to? -or better yet, continue using their existing Windows OS.... unless (poor saps) its Windows ME ..blah~
