SuSE, openSUSE SuSE Linux 9.1 is the followup to an excellent desktop distribution. SuSE gave me the opportunity to use SuSE 9.1 Professional for a couple weeks. This is a review/personal thoughts on the distro.

Stop Complaining.

"Is ther /any/ differences in a Linux distrobution? This is getting boring. What can Suse do that I can't do in Mandrake, Fedora, Gentoo, slack, debian, or the 100's of other flavors.

Installing software is different but other than that, they ARE the same. Install is a one time deal (unless you are a reviewer). What is the real benefit of these reviews? They are the same."
Maybe I should complain about the constant Longhorn updates and XP SP2 pre-reviews?
Maybe I should complain that Apple releases OS X too often.
Shall I complain about all the SkyOS news?

Seriously man, it's a commercial OS and each version deserves a review posted on reputable news sites. Major distributions are actually all quite different. Suse is usually a sort of "mega distribution." As it comes on I think 5 disks, or it used to.
Let me list some major ones so you don't get confused in the future: Debian, Slackware, Fedora, Mandrake Suse, Gentoo, Crux; actually I'm just naming the ones that have been around for a while ;) .
