SuSE 9.1


I will be buying SuSE 9.1 Pro later this month.

- Is SuSE 9.1 multilanguage?

For example: If I bought a copy of SuSE in Germany would I be able to use the same copy to install a version of SuSE in English?

- Can I use the same SuSE installation CD's on more than one computer?

For example: I have two computers and would like to install SuSE on both of these computers using the same CD's.

- Is it legal to give a copy of SuSE to a friend?

- If I give a copy of SuSE to a friend who is in a different country than the one that I am in, will he be able to recieve updates via YOU?

Thank you for your help.

I hope I will soon be a happy SuSE Linux user

There is already a discussion here about that subject.My opinion is yes.

Systems installed via downloaded iso's of 9.0 (through filesharing) can perfectly update via YOU. So, I guess the answer is: yes.
