Suse 8.2 - should I buy it? what are your views?
 
Hi,

I am tempted to get a copy of Suse 8.2 Pro as it is only 20 from Amazon.

My concern is that 9.0 is coming out soon and maybe I should wait for that, however, it is significantly more price.

As Linux is open source (w00t, w00t) I figure that I can update all of the software as it is realeased anyway, and therefore spending less will be an andvantage.

I wish to buy a copy and not download it in order to suport the open source software.


Many thanks for your views

I've been looking for Mandrake in my Local retail store.
I may go get it online if it's THAT cheap! and maybe RH9 too.
