SuSE Certification

I am a RHCE and I was wondering has anyone attempted or certified with SuSE Linux?


I really would like to try it out, however I started out with Red Hat 6.0 Professional when you could call a 1-800 number to Red Hat and a guy would answer the phone for support.


It has taken several years to learn and grasp the concepts so I think I will look at SuSE's Certifications and get into it.

What desktop manager is best to use it SuSE KDE or Gnome?

Any info would be appreciated, also do they use app armor correct to SELinux in RHEL?

Maybe a bit late for your answer but anyways ;)

There are certifications for Novell products, including SLES on their site www.novell.com. Expect something similar and analogous to Red Hat certifications, but I never needed any certifications so I can't give you more insight.

Suse has been traditionally a KDE distro but today you can use both WM's since they provide Gnome too with equal care. Actually on their Server products and their SLED(Enterprise Desktop) they default to Gnome.

About the SELinux question you asked, I didn't quite get what you are trying to say. Their offer for enhanced security policies is AppArmor and is much easier(and different) than SELinux. Although recently there was talk that they are going to support SELinux also. Rumor has it they are going to drop apparmor but I haven't followed this issue any further and don't know the latest facts.
