According to the article, it'll _also_ be included in the lower-priced
SuSE Linux Desktop bundle.  (Neither is yet a current product.)
Projected list price for Desktop is $130 or the same number of Euros.

NTFS resizers, Crossover Office and Plug-In, and sometimes Star Office
seem to among the most common non-redistributable proprietary sweeteners
in the new "desktop" distributions (Xandros Desktop, Lycoris, etc.).
It seems likely SuSE are moving to ensure they can take advantage of
that market, if it turns out to be real.
