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.

I believe its because you have got Lindows installed that you feel SuSE is not doing anything different. One thing SuSE does is allows you to install it free off FTP servers. What does Lindows do? Rename packages developed completely by the community (is this violating GPL, anyone?) and sell them to you at a premium via the maked running man thing (i hate its name) but I guess I'm trolling too.
If you're really comparing distros and commenting, SuSE 9.0 is better than Mandrake 10 anyday!
This, from someone who has the following running on the machine:
1. Xandros Desktop 2.0
2. SuSE 9.0
3. PCLinuxOS
4. Mandrake 10
5. ArkLinux
6. Fedora Core 2

My wife, who is not a great Linux fan or even an IT person, has moved to SuSE all on her own -- she was a Xandros Desktop user (No Windows in my home :-) ) and that says more about SuSE's usability than any review can!
