4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Randy on July 10 2004
I have to say I have tried alot of distros. Of all of them Suse 9.1 has impressed me the most. One does not have to be a geek to maintain it. Updates are a doodle. You know you always have an up to date, and secure system.
The selection of software is incredible. I love having 4 browsers to choose from. M$office compatible programs coming out the wazoo. All this for how much??
I am sooo pleased to see this finally on Amazon.ca. You wouldn't believe what I had to do to get my copy.
I have been using Suse since 8.1 and with every iteration the distro has been getting better and better.
Come on over to open source, the water's fine!!

I would have to say that this distro has to be one of the most user friendly distributions I have ever really used. I have dabbed around in Debian, spent plenty of time in Redhat 7.3, 8 and 9, as well as Redhat Enterprise Linux 3 WS, and I have also had plenty of experience with Fedora Core 1 as well. Although this distribution is excellent, it is not without its quirks... at least, here are a few that I have encountered:
- Setting up your system to use a static IP address through YaST is a little more challenging than it should be
- When setting up a static IP in YaST, I ended up saving the subnet as 255.255.255.0, however, running ifconfig showed the subnet as 255.255.255.255
- Installing ATI drivers in this distro is a little trickier than any other distro that I have played with. You will need to download the drivers from the SuSe FTP site rather than from ATI
- when logged in as a regular user, signing in as root through Switch User (su) in the terminal will practically disable access to any GUI based applications you may want to execute as a root user without logging out or switching the user through graphical means
Those are just a few of my beefs... however, through YOU (Yast Online Updater) there are alot of nice things you can install without having to go through any websites, such as nVidia graphics drivers, which I believe have excellent linux support (ATI drivers suck in Linux), Microsoft core fonts, firmware for WiFi cards, and a few other neat little things. The great stuff available within SuSe 9.1 Pro easily outweighs the bad. They have definately nailed a distribution suitable for the home user.
