eval suse 10 simple stupid update question


very simple,

I understand that the eval version is missing some commercial packages. that's fine.

the big question is:
if I download the "eval" version of suse (instead of downloading from opensuse), will it ask for a password when I try an online update? am I being to microsoftish?

So what is the limitation on the evaluation version? Time limit? Or just that you will have to download and install missing packages?

To my knowledge, the only difference between the eval version and the boxed retail set is that the latter has some non-free (in both senses) software, and the included installation support & manuals. Other than that, they're identical (no time limits, etc).

This pretty much sums it up: http://linux.wordpress.com/2005/10/06/47/
