Pros: YaST has quicker response time, GUI based patch management easy to use.
Cons: Must invoke KDE from XServer after boot from 9.3 build on hard drive

I purchased the SuSE 9.3 professional release from Novell with upgrade pricing - this is the 2nd day that I am reviewing my confiiguration.

I installed the upgrade DVD set on a Compaq EVO N800V Pentium 4 nobebook with 1GB RAM and partitioned Toshiba 80GB 5400 hard drive with 16MB buffer.

I began to activate some of my EVO's performance features manually in YaST such as my notebook's 3D accelleration, DMA, indexing.....and then rebooted.

It was this 2nd reboot which showed the XServer requiring a manual invocation of KDE (i just put in the KDE and hit enter, then my KDE desktop started to activate).

I am going to open a problem call with Novell on this to get their "official" resolution. I am new to Linux, but my years of working as a mainframe systems programmer lead me to believe the vendor may suggest backing off some of the patches I downloaded or there may be a replacement for the patches. (Or in IBM lingo....PTF or APAR).

Please accept my apology for being a newbie here, I do not know all of the technical aspects of working with Linux but from my observations, Linux distros are much easier to configure and tweak than Windows.

Pros: Comprehensive Distro, runs on older systems
Cons: A lttle bit confusing to use YAST

Have SUSE 9.3 on two older systems (Pentium III 366 and 666 w/ less than 400 meg of RAM) and, while a little slow, runs flawlessly. Recognizes all hardware inluding ATI TV card and ran it without flaw.
