Hey all

Hey all, my name is Dan and I'm all the way from Australia. Well after many months of duel booting Novell/Suse Linux 10.1 with Windows XP (shiver here) I finally got rid of XP and now run Novell Suse linux full time on my system, giving me now ane xtra 60gig storage space for data in linux, that windows ori0ginally had.

I've hated Microsoft Windows for ages, and well i wanted an OS that would do what i want to do and it woul;dnt be hard to learn. I found SUSE Eneterprise Linux Novell 10.1 on a free dvd disc here for a PC magazine in Australia, and i gave it a go,. and sicne then i have enjoyed using it!

Thanks to some help, i have now DVD working so i can play any of my reigon 1 and reigon 4 dvd's I have. Which begs the question how came there is no restriction in linux like WIndows about certain reigons you can play?

Anyways just wanted to say you guys rock!!

Oh and hello + merry christmas! happy new year!

Hi and welcome to LQ The lack of restrictions is followed throughout, not just in region encoding. Welcome to the free world
