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.

"See, now lets include these in the reviews. That is my point, the Linux reviews don't talk about what is different! "

there are differences. its up to the reviewers to consider these and some others


"how about a list of what they write that other distros don't or can't have and how it is better? "

i am that involved in what they do but if you are really interested you can read stuff like

planetsuse.org

if you consider novell as a whole there is quite a few

yast
devfs
udev,hal and project utopia
hotplug
ximian stuff
work on gnome
customisations on kde
sponsporing reiserfs and including it as default

technically a lot of these stuff could be included in other distros but they dont and that still makes a difference
