Reasons to upgrade
Is there a thread that tracks improvements in SUSE versions? I am currently using 9.1 personal which I find stable and easy to install from a single CD. But I wonder what extra features I might get by installing 9.2 or 9.3. I would hate to upgrade only to run into problems or be disappointed with buggy newer versions of application software.

Don't upgrade to 9.2
The only reason I'm no longer a SusE fan is becasue of 9.2. It was like Windows ME.

The main reasons to upgrade a distro though would be:
- New Window Manager / X system release
- New Kernel version

Most of this can be upgraded through YaST, or by compiling it yourself. And always remember, if your happy with what you have, don't change it.

Oh yeah, I don't think there is a thread that tracks the changes. If it exists, I've never seen it.
