SuSE 9 Professional - highly recommended


Decided to try my wifes copy of SuSE 9 Professional on one of my partitions this morning. OMG is it an outstanding example of kick ass distro magic! It's beautiful to the eye and comes with realplayer, java, java web start and acrobat reader as install choices. I've been using Linux since '98 or so and this particular flavor of Linux gets thumbs up from little 'ole me.

Great idea. Actually my wife is the writer, I'm get her to do up a review.

BTW, it also already has the java plugin installed and working by default.

That would be nice for most. I on the other hand last used Suse when it was 6.4.. never looked back or interested in installing it, I'm Slackware all the way..

I'm not a big fan of the RPM based distro's and really don't need them to do everything for me either..

Cheers.

Yeh I thought I would give suse 9 pro a try. I went running back to LFS! Cool distro, suse, but it's nothing for me. I like to get my hands dirty. Just a darn shame of the money I spend on it.
