SUSE upgrade to newer release
I'm thinking of buying the SUSE distro but I don't know if I should wait for the 8.0 release or if I could buy the 7.3 release and upgrade it to 8.0 using the YAST (or YAST2). Is it even possible to upgrade (using YAST or YAST2) to a new release whitout having to purchase the cd's?
In general, is it better to stick with a X.n (n = 1, 2, etc) release than upgrading to a X.0 release with all it's expected problems? What do you think?
