Re: SuSE vs. Ubuntu
I purchased SuSE 9.3 and ran it on one of my desktops for learning purposes back in early 2005. Since then I upgraded to 10.0 and more recently 10.1
During the same time I ran ubuntu on another partition and now have Dapper installed on my Lenovo laptop and one of my desktops.
I have gradually migrated to ubuntu after cutting my teeth on SuSE and earlier versions of ubuntu and now find I prefer the gnome desktop and ubuntu way of doing things.
I no longer run SuSE as I find it bloated. I was also frustrated with the 10.1 upgrade, even with a fresh install, and all the problems with the new update system - which didn't work when released (why release it?)
I think I am a lot more comfortable with linux now and maybe that is why I feel I can cut loose from SuS.. oops, OpenSuSE which is a nice distro for those abandoning Windows for the first time.
