Well for starters the free version of Redhat is no longer maintained. There is Fedora Core which is from the Redhat people but I've only heard bad things about it. SuSE is very newbie-friendly, kind of bloated and uses KDE as it's default desktop. Redhat/Fedora seems to me to be more development-oriented whereas SuSE is more a desktop distro but both can easily used for either.

Major difference - Red Hat produce Red Hat, Novell produces SuSE. If you tell us what it is you want to know about these 2 rpm based distros, we can give you better answers.

If you want help then don't be so vague in your question. The difference is that they use different versions of different packages and there are MANY different packages. No one could list off hand the differences, and certainly there aren't that many differences that are particularly 'technical', just the versions they use.

Try them both, see which you like, then use slackware

The difference is that one is more bloated than the other, though I'm not sure which one this is.

pakuson - none of us here is psychic. If you really want to know the differences, go to their respective homepages and read the changelogs. Also read up on all the documentation behind each implementation of all files/folders/security/protocols/etc/etc on each distro.

Vague questions get vague and flippant answers. Remember: LQ is a help site, no a personal search engine.

hi there,

what you mean with Technical Difference?
both are rpm based distros. is that what you mean? btw, rpm comes from "redhat package management".
default desktop is important? Suse uses KDE and RedHat gnome.
Suse has something called Yast and RedHat has something also....
and so on...

regards

My -- very personal -- opinion:

Better download a free (of charge) Linux and spend the money
on buying good books or printing some important docs...
...or supporting FSF.

Question Difference Between Suse & Redhat

Dear All Experts,

First of all thanx for giving me reply & Sorry for asking this type of question.

My intantion is not to ask any Vague questions & i know very well that LQ is not Search engine.

I think i do a mistake to ask question to my Experts friend ( when somebody give me answer like " Major difference - Red Hat produce Red Hat, Novell produces SuSE." this then i feel that i m doing mistake. )

Again sorry for this.


Thanx again

Regards

Pakuson

dont try to check any one 1st you check that how much capable you are in linux. you said that you are not that much new in linux so that any one can tell you that redhat intrdoduce rhel and novell introduce suse.

so if you are experienced you should no this answer and if you really dont no then dont tell me that you are friendly with linux.

now if you want to know the answer of your question just simply type redhat vs suse and google will tell you the answer. NO NEED TO ASK ANYONE


TRY TO BE POLITE
GOD BLESS
May be you should follow your own advice, be polite. Personal insults are not allowed on this forum, I reported that.
You also should not resurrect old threads, this thread is from 2005.

If this is a general question, there is no significant technical difference between SUSE and Red Hat. Both are built on the Linux kernel.

If it's a detailed question, there are differences in many bits between SUSE and Red Hat. For example, if you're interested in administrative tools, SUSE and Red Hat configure their tools based on different philosophies.

Good way to start out on LQ by violating several LQ Rules;
Quote:
Personal attacks on others will not be tolerated.

Do not post if you do not have anything constructive to say in the post.

When posting in an existing thread, ensure that what you're posting is on-topic and relevant to the thread. If the content of your post will interfere with the current discussion, you should start a new thread.
Please review LQ Rules again to prevent you from violating any rules.

I also suggest that use LQ spell check in reply window. Select the underlined text by right click and a list of words will provide suggested replacement word.

BTW, the original post date is over 6 years old. Do not resurrect old threads unless absolutely necessary. In this case it should not have been done.
