I am annoyed with suse


I like suse so much but then again I hate it because it hangs every now and then. If i just click something it stops for a while and then starts again.

I have 768 MB DDR RAM (pc2100)
intel pentium 2.2 Ghz

Is this a statement or do you actually have a problem?

I just switched from suse 9.1 to FC2 ... I love both of them, never had the problems you experienced with a very similar computer

As there doesn't seem to be a structured question behind this, I am sending this to the home of the rant .... General.

I have similar problems but you know what? ITS NOT WINDOWS. Just mess around a bit and you can get things to work the way you want. ive been using linux (Suse 9.1) for about a week and im loving it. One thing that bugged me at first was my music would skip non stop. about 10 minutes of messing around and i fixed it. I still get hangs here and there but it worth it. hope you stay with it.

Funny how when "Windoze" hiccups, everyone starts cursing and swearing, but when Linux starts cranking up, it's suddenly ok and "worth it".

Well windows has been around for awhile now, so yes, any little problem and people do get testy. Where I come from, cranking up is a good thing.

Well, yes and no.
Being a Linux bulletin board there is going to be a bias.
Not any worse (or better) than Linux talk on a Windows bulletin board. Oh, yes, I have read what unuseable c*** Linux is. I disagree, of course.

If windows hickups, it's either the software failing or it's user error.
If linux hickups, it's user error. (except when it's software failing)

It was a joke. But seriously, there are far fewer software probs. on linux in my humble opinion. It's just a nightmare to set it up to start with, but once it's going it doesn't stop!
