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 "

calling mozilla lindows browser is meant to simplify things and it is clearly acknowledged in the about box. redhat also tries to simplify it by calling it web browser. there is nothing wrong about it. its not violating the gpl in anyway either. nobody needs to bombared with all those new names when using linux for the first time. they only charge for proprietary apps and you can use apt-get anyway which is installed and perfectly working.

they contribute back

employ everaldo who designed the crystal icon set for kde
sponspor gaim, linux on xbox,,, debconf etc

i dont use lindows either but there is no need to bash them
