I guess you all can see why I am stuck on using it, but upgrading is probably more reasonable.
When I purchased my SuSE package, two years ago, it was the best idea at the time, but it did not take long for them to upgrdae to 8.2. I have to admitt, that kind of irritated me a bit. It is nice to see improvements, but a few months after my purchase? However, this is the story of my life. I am starting to believe that the merchants are watching what I buy and then they mark it down and either reduce the price in a couple of weeks, or contact the manufacuters to make major changes in the next couple of months. Basically, they can see me coming.
Just in case anyone is wondering, I purchased my distro at Future Shop.
Also, does anyone have and good pointer on how to upgrade my distro without error, and without cost. I know this is asking a lot, but it would be a great help.
Regardless of my ups and downs with software, I believe that SuSE is a wonderful piece of work. It sure makes linux a friendly environment.
