Chris Stone just announced that Novell will be moving the whole company to OpenOffice by the end of the year, and to Linux on the desktop a year after (I did not see the graph clearly).
iFolder and Simias (A metadata-based file system, with built-in synchronization) have been Open Sourced as well, and you can check it out here. Simias is similar to Longhorn's WinFS and i tis built on Mono.
Nat just demoed the desktop, with iFolder/Simias to share and synchronize the data between a Windows machine and a Linux machine and demostrated the Groupwise support for Evolution and Gaim.
