I have to say that SUSE is the best distro I have used so far. I've just tried the RH null beta and I was impressed with how _polished_ everything looks. Nevertheless, SUSE is far ahead in the mixture of usability, power, updatability (?) and looks.

I have a question, though. I'm currently using SUSE 8.0 Personal (DL) but I was wondering what are the main differences with the Profesional version and if it's worth it the upgrade for a server. Any comments?
