Congratulation!

I like OpenOffice too :-)

I use Gaim, but I prefer Kopete.

You can install new program from YaST2 GUI (Install and Remove Software Module), or using rpm (rpm -ivh packagename), or using yast (yast -i packagename), or using apt for SuSE (apt-get install packagename), or using Synaptic (GUI), or few other ways (using konqueror plugins, ./configure make su make install) etc.

Yes, I like the smooth graphics too :-) 3D games in 24bit colors at high-res.

Mozilla is also available. I like it for browsing only.

Here are some sites for downloading stuffs:
http://rpm.pbone.net/
http://www.rpmseek.com/
http://packman.links2linux.de/


Have fun :-)

I'm also a recent convert. I first tried Redhat 9. It was ok, but I didn't really like Gnome, and plus Redhat is more focused on business. So I tired Suse 8.2, and I love it! It has everything I need, mainly OpenOffice and Konqueror (though it should be updated to include all the stuff Apple has added to it). I'm still a little intimidated by the command line and editing files and such, but I'm learning. It's just so nice to be able to install it without having to do too much, and all for such a cheap price.

Kjetil4455,

www.suse.com take a link to install from thier ftp site. They don't make iso's available they would rather have you buy it to support development.
