Windows Microsft has made hard statements about perfomance improvements in Longhorn. They claim that applications will load 15% faster than in XP, while boot time is decreased by 50%. They also claimed that Longhorn will be able to wake up from sleep in 2 seconds. Users should also expect half as many reboots during patching. Time to dust of those trustworthy stopwatches.

Just use another distribution. It is very easy to find a faster one (and better from many points of view as well)
SUSE is (in)famous for being extremely slow, and not just when booting.

Nothing short of a complete redesign will convince me to use SUSE ever again.

Thanks for your response! Can you give me a suggestion? I was thinking the new Mandriva 2006 beta looks cool but all I know is SuSE and Yast.

Once it is up and running, it is great. But my only computer is a laptop and I am on the run a bit.

I am definately a KDE guy. Tried Ubuntu and hated Gnome!

Thanks,

Bob

You are welcome ;)
Indeed, I believe that Mandriva is now a much better choice than SUSE.
Another great favourite of mine is Kanotix: free, complete, great support, easy to use thanks to Kano's scripts and the wiki. Great laptop support as well.

Tried Kubuntu? It's Ubuntu with KDE as default desktop environment.
