SUSE 9.1 Personal now available as ISO !!!


Suse has made available it's Personal now as ISO downloads on its ftp and mirrors.
This is a great step...

Suse 9.1 Personal is only a single installation CD?? As I understand it, Professional is on 5 CD's, so is Personal really that much smaller? Or is this a Live CD? -- J.W.

See the last item,

In order to convince even more people of the advantages of using Linux, version 9.1 makes switching easier than ever. The policy is to make it "lean and inexpensive"...

I downloaded it and installed it on a machine here. There's no gnome, sources, compilers and only a few packages, but the resulting system has all the needed functionality including Openoffice and all the multimedia stuff.

I was surprised and I like it. It's not so bloated and I've entered a Suse-mirror-ftp as online source and this way all the pro-packages can be installed via yast.

This new policy will surely give suse a boost in popularity... but they will lose some paying pro customers too -- I might be the first ...
