Re: 10.2 or 10.3?
Not any of the openSuSE releases are rated as production or mission critical OSs... Only SLED & SLES are rated that way...
If you like SuSE and want stable, SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, SP1 on the desktop and SLES 10 on a production server.
10.3 is nice, polished, down right beautiful, however, as mentioned in certain areas kind of unstable. 10.2 was just slllloooow. I'm still waiting for YaST to open the software management app from nine months ago.... Updates in 10.2 took forever. The enterprise versions (SLES & SLED) use a different mechanism to get security & other updates.
