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.

"How long does suspend-to-disk (and resume-from-disk) take relative to WinXP? I got it to work on my Latitude C640 with SUSE 9.0 and Kernel 2.6.5 (Kraxel RPMs), but both suspending and resuming take a *long* time!"

Sounds like you're in need of some good powerbook loving. My powerbook only drains about a percent an hour when it is asleep, and it wakes up in an astonishingly little amount of time. Let me test now, it's been sleeping for about 6 hours: 2 seconds for screen to come on, 4 more seconds for cursor to work and everything to be operational. That's 6 seconds of wakeup time from a 6 hour nap, with only 6% of the battery life lost.

Anywho, just thought I'd mention that "other" *nix.
