Don't know for sure..have been using the free versions for my
day-to-day computing (communications) needs for last 3-4 years and
never needed to bother about what these (so called) commercial
versions are! :-)

Also kMail is improved a lot over these time and it makes my life
simpler.  Luckily I can use it without having to launch kontact..

Most of experiences are of similar nature... Some OpenSuSE fans said
it has better developer tools which maybe true but who cares... till
they fix their installer to correctly detect existing Linux partitions
:-)

In return for using the (so called) free tools, try to educate people
of benefits of free tools and trying to implement solutions based on
them ... because conscience does not allow to take anything free (as
in gratis)... since it costs someone something... sometimes time...

Coming back to the topic, I understand from a friend that Mandriva One
CD worked great where OpenSuSE 10.3 failed for a new DELL laptop due
to the issue of Prop.Vs Free tango...
