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.

If you don't like reading about OS news on a sight dedicated to that very subject then yes, stop complaining, and find someone else to bother.

SuSE is VERY different from other distros. In fact, as someone who continuously tries different distributions for fun, I find most of them to be vastly different in terms of presentation, performance, stability, and support. Different distros also reach different audiences. Like Gentoo vs. SuSE. Yes, they are both Linux, but the comfortable SuSE user would probably go crying to mom if someone threw Gentoo or Slackware in front of him. In my experience, I've found SuSE 9.1 and Gentoo to be far superior to anything else out there. This is just my opinion. Gentoo lets me tinker on the bleeding edge and runs my primary server at home. I do hate the compiling sometimes. SuSE is a snap to use in virutally every aspect. Its extremely polished and just works....better than any other that Ive tried. This is why these reviews are posted here. So all the OS enthusiasts can read them and compare etc. Decide what they want to try next. Again, if this doesnt interest some ppl then don't read the freaking review!
