RedHat 9 & Suse 8.2 - Which one?


I have both Suse 8.2 and RedHat 9. I have loaded both distros and played with both of them. They both seem okay to me. I don't really know if I have a preference, however, I guess I need to commit to one or the other.

What are the pros and cons for these distros and why would you select one over the other?

"What are the pros and cons for these distros and why would you select one over the other?"

Three years ago I was faced with the same problem and I chose SuSE because it was the first distribution that I got working to the point that I did not have to reinstall it again because of my newbie mistakes. Since then I have used SuSE because it works fine and upgrading SuSE is easier than switching to some other distribution.

But, by the laws of chance I could have landed on Red Hat as the first working install. In that case I would have been a happy Red Hat user for the last three years.

Go with whatever you have working now.

You dont have to pick ONE.

Run both until you know enough to make a decision.

And dont leave out all the other distros out there. You may find another one that suits you better.

Linux is about choice.
