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.

Disti's aint the same!

What I look for in a disti. is:
Ability to find hardware
Installation method (apt-get, rpm, red Carpet)
Documentation.
Whether it runs on my old laptop

Suse 9 has kept me happy, more so than RH9 and Fedora on these points. Not to say RH documentation is poor - it certainly aint, but SuSe's aims directly at its target audience.
RH is 'all things to all men'. Proof? D/L the Enterprise RH, and check it against RH9. Almost the same, yet one is presumably aimed at power-users, the other for '<'trollbait'>' "enthusiasts" '<'/trollbait'>'.
So this is one disti. I'll be buying.
