    SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop + 1 year standard subscription

    Folks:
    I need to learn SUSE for a client; however, I am a pro Ubuntu user, and know nothing of SUSE.

    But my main question - what is the '1-year standard subscription"? Is this only for help support, or are updates included with this subscription? If the subscription is not renewed, are security updates still available?

    I used OpenSUSE which has neither fee but I believe that the fee does apply to updates as well as support.

    Edit: Yes, fee needs be paid "to get patches and updates" : P

    is OpenSUSE the samething as Enterprise, but without the support?

    Yes, and without the license to use as a professional workspace, but fine for home PCs

    I would suggest you should join the openSUSE forum, and use that as a resource for how to do things the SUSE way. Yes, the paid-for SUSE Linux Enterprise edition is different than openSUSE, but there are plenty of similarities too.

    Oh, and don't be afraid of being an Ubuntu user in the openSUSE forums... I am and there are a number of other people there so don't worry (if they get nasty, give me a call... we'll gang up on 'em )

    Funny that you mention that, but that is what turned me off of the Fedora/Red Hat forum. I needed support on Fedora one time, since that OS handles Apache sites a little different. someone was making fun like "awww, you Ubuntu user...". Then everyone was like "google...it".

    Thanks for the help again mate.
    cheers

    openSUSE dies too much. I wanted to abandon Ubuntu but switched to openSUSE. After a smooth ride for a while, it went to crap. Lots of issues. I suggest you just use SLED.

    Yes Dragondite always brings that up.

    Download the KDE Version. It's the best I've ever seen.

    I dual Boot Ubuntu 10.10 and openSUSE 11.2

    Where did you did find that 1 year subscription.

    All you have to know is the different package manager,

    If you used Ubuntu for a year, you should pick it up in less than

    a week.
