Pros: Easy Install, Loooots of Programs and tools
Cons: Grafic Card and Monitor

I am using SuSE 9.0 only for my Servers. I have some applications which are not available under Linux and I can't switch my operation to a new software what easy. Maybe later on, but XP works fine :-)

Anyway, I installed SuSE on a Workstation with a Hercules Grafic Card but I couldn't get the graphics properly running. (Lack of driver at this stage)
Don't mind. Also I have installed Linux on my Web-/Mail-/Proxyserver. Perfectly. Configuration and everything else went smoothly without any problems. I am using SuSE Linux since Version 4.3 maybe that is the reason why I use it. I have tried Debian once and Redhat. But none of these distries where satisfying for me.

I recomend SuSE and give a 10.

Pros: Partitioning, easy to use, nice layout,
Cons: no much documents in english, some program installation trouble

Very good, easy to use and configurable operating system. It have very nice graphical interface. Free updates. I tried to find some documents about his distro in internet, but i couldn't find any in english. Most of them was in German. I tried to install many third party programs but i couldn't finish it. But if u have rpms no problem at all. It worth a try.

Pros: Good for beginners, easy to configure things
Cons: Didn't recognize all my hardware, my changes didn't always "stick"

This was my first Linux distro in about 5 years, and it really helped me get back into the swing of things. Unfortunately, it didn't detect my wifi card, so I had to use it offline for a year until I finally just bought an ethernet cable. I would recommend this for any beginner.
