I haven't seen one yet. And the boys at SuSE haven't put anything on the store shelves in Vancouver since 6.3

I was curious, what does "live evaluation runs from cd only" mean on those ISO's.

It means that you boot from the CD and can run from the CD only, as opposed to installing to your hard drive. It's nifty, but kind of useless. IMHO it's not one of the better marketing approaches I've seen. They had this way back when I got my 6.0 CD set (3 or four intallation disks and one 'live' disk). It's good for absolute linux newbies, but that's about it.

One of the interesting things they have done with bootable CD's is using it in an enterprise firewall package. Since CDs' are read-only media, it makes for a firewall setup that's quite safe. Customizations are read from a floppy (which I would hope is removed after being read). At US$649 it's definately not for the hobbyist but it's a fair price if it can do what it claims. http://www.suse.com/us/suse/news/Pre.../Firewall.html

SuSE does not want to give away Linux anymore. They want you to buy it. They have not posted an Intel ISO since 6.4. If you go to linuxiso.com you can find the "evaluation" iso's that run from cd only. They have also posted the Sparc iso for 7.1.
When you go to the page check out the "news and updates". You will see an explanation of the SuSE strategy.

You can still do an FTP install from scratch. It works for at least up to 7.1

Looks as if I won't be installing or using SuSE anytime in the near future. I use because I don't have to buy. I guess there will be a boycott in my house with SuSE.

There's an ISO avaialble for versions up to SuSE 7.0 (i386). You can still install via ftp by just making the boot and modules disk.

I agreed, Linux should be free, but I do think SuSE should be able to charge for their package. They are a private company, and spend a lot of time developing utilities such as YaST etc.

If you want to download Linux for free, they are not stopping you. All they are doing is providing useful setup utilities, manuals and support, and I think $30 or so is not a bad price to pay for that.

SuSE are aiming at the casual hobbyist for home users. Whereas Debian may be completely free of any private company, the distribution works through everybody taking part in developing it. With SuSE, they do the development for you.

Linux IS free, it's just their distro they want you to pay for. I mean look at it, 7 cd's Plus 1 DVD, beefed up with software, Uses range from simple Xterminals to high-end servers...

Its actually very good - you can very quickly get an idea of whether a machine is hardware compatible with the SuSE distro just by putting the CD in.

Free Distors

SuSE 7.2 Personal for $30US is a pretty good deal. Consider the price for WinXXX with half the added software you get with SuSE ( OK, nowhere near half the software). SuSE should provide ISOs for just the base Linux OS though. After all, even they get that for free. The extra cost for development of Yast and the packaging of extras is well worth the money. Charging $20US for downloading the full version might not be a bad idea either. No cost to them for burning the CD's, printing manuals and distribution to the retail stores is a cost saver for SuSE.

Question Creating CD's from downloaded dist.

Does anyone know where I could find out what goes on which CD once the entire 7.2 distribution is downloaded (it took 27 hours from download.sourceforge.net)?

I would like to install from CD, but I assume that "things" must be placed on the "correct" CD's for install to work properly.
