I think(atleast right after NLD's release), you could download the ISO's
for "evaluation." Everything worked except the updates were limited to a
month or so. I would presume you could get atleast reasonably adequate
updates using apt, Red Carpet, or maybe just by using SuSE update
mirrors(I'm not sure how well that would work). Personally, I like
regular SuSE better. NLD doesn't have anywhere near the number of
packages in SuSE.
