SUSE 9.2 student edition


I wanna buy SUSE 9.2 student edition, but whats the diffences between the normal pro version and the student edition?

Its half the price, near enough, for us student types. So i am sceptical that its not a dumbed down version (like ms office for example)

I don't know what's in the student edition. However, an even better deal is to download an ISO image from, for example, linuxiso.org. Burn it to CD, and you're ready to install. I don't think the 9.2 ISO is out yet, but I expect it will appear at approximately the same time that the 9.2 CDs ship, which will be "from beginning of November," says Novell here:

<looks at watch>

From beginning of November? Isn't that now?

If there is no difference between the full-blown Professional edition of SuSE Pro versus the Student Edition how does one qualify?

mdevilz,

Before I jump over there you seem to have more or less first hand knowledge.

Can you confirm that this is the same new full-blown SuSE 9.2 version that will hit the shelves soon? MS often flogged their "Student Edition"

The only difference ive seen between the two versions is that the Student Edition has a Sticker Thrown on it

as you still get the DVD's and CD's and Manuals

mdevilz,

I'll go with the full store shelf edition. I'd rather buy a used text to save the cash.

Thanks for jumping in here.

thanks once again,

I did read the edu site first and it links to 9.2 pro. This was why i was unsure of differences

BTW, the .iso's come out a bit after the retail release. Took 9.1 at least a couple of weeks after release to be available for download.

I'm sorry to say though that SuSE has only released live eval CD's and DVD's and the 1st out of 3 cd's for Personal but seeing there is no longer A Personal version ... oh they also have a boot ISO for the FTP install
