No problem. SUSE is an awesome OS (although I prefer Ubuntu myself.) Oh, yeah, btw, you could try Ubuntu 64 bit edition a try if you don't like SUSE.

Just stick the DVD in and reboot. For Visual Basic, you'll want to give Mono a test run on SUSE. Go into Yast, click on change installation source, and delete the DVD and add this source.

Don't worry, it is an official SUSE mirror, nothing third party, it is just faster than SUSE's main mirror. In case you are still worried, check SUSE's Home Page. You can find the mirror listed there. You can play native Linux games or you can try to use Cedega to run Windows games.

Just wondering, does the AMD64 version of Ubuntu include 32 bit libraries for installing 32 bit programs (such as web browsers so I can use Flash)?
