Wanna run more enterprise Linux with enterprise support, but having to find creative ways to fund it? You may already be entitled to it...
If you have VMware vSphere for your hypervisor, you may be able to get SUSE Linux Enterprise Server for VMware at no additional charge (talk to your VMware rep for details)... SLES for VMware can be used to run an unlimited number of Guest VM's on that VMware host. It is an entitlement of your VMware maintenance (SNS), which means you can save $$!
This Microsoft video has a scary amount of FUD... but it does beg the question of why they felt compelled to make an entire video about it. Eroding marketshare?? I do think that it's pretty clear that many of the folks in the video with quotes were clearly not using an enterprise-version of OpenOffice. That is where it sounds like most of them went wrong...
The items they mentioned such as macros, file interoperability, page formatting, and getting support are all directly addressed by enterprise-supported versions (such as the Novell edition we make). If you wouldn't use "free Linux" for your mission-critical servers, why would you do it for your office productivity suite? Just doesn't make any sense!!!

[personal note] This offers an interesting set of tools for a developer to create extensions, which are claimed to be first class citizens within the wave. It's reassuring that there is mention of how development has not kept to the standard API's but is mostly compatible with them. This may either mean a forking away from standards in the future,
Here is the bundle of stuff that was presented at the November meeting including the step by step PDF. See attached file.
