Thread: Since when do you use (open)SuSE ?

  1. #1

    Default Since when do you use (open)SuSE ?

    Hi everyone,
    this is my first post here

    fortunately, I do not experience any problems with openSuSE at the moment, so let me start with a simple question to you...

    I myself started with SuSE Linux 9.0 which my father bought some day and I found a very cool OS (with excellent manuals btw - it was the boxed version)
    I had it installed dual-boot with xp but never had time to really get into the usage of 9.0 so it was merely a side project
    my active use of Linux began with openSuSE 10.3 (Alpha) which i liked from the first moment and now here I am waiting for 11.0

    I jumped on SUSE when 9.1 came out. Before that I used Mandrake (now Mandriva) but slowly got fed up with it so I decided to try another distro. The main reason for me choosing for SUSE over the other distros was YaST. Since SUSE 9.1, I'm 100% SUSE here.

    Use it since 9.0 (2003).

    I was using Linux for 2 years before (RH, Mandrake). Now, openSUSE is my main distribution, although I sometimes use Arch Linux too.

    I'm another one, who entered the SuSE-Linux-World with 9.0.
    I think I was using Linux (Debian on a server) for about 1 year before.

    I started with 10.2 beta4. Yep, I'm a new-comer . I was on slack before that.

    Started using SUSE with 9.2 Pro shortly after Novell's acquisition of
    SuSE.

    Prior to that, I used RedHat, going back to 5.2. I saw the light and now
    run 10.1 (x2), 10.3 (x2), and have 11.0 RC1 on one laptop.

    I often wonder if there's something wrong with me having more computers
    in the house than people. :-)

    There is nothing wrong with that. I have four computers in my house (only three people, one of them a four-year old). My brother lives with my parents and they have 9 computers (one of them an HP Proliant server! ).

    I started using SuSE with 10.0.
    OpenSUSE Leap 15, KDE5 (plasma 5.16.5, frameworks 5.62, QT 5.13.1)

    Yes, but I don't think it really has anything to do with computers.....anyway [ahem] my first taste of Linux at all was after the merge of Novell & SUSE and I installed 9.2 pro on my work machine in dual boot mode just to check it out. Currently running full time on SLED but plan to move to openSUSE 11 after it's released. Luckily someone showed me the benefits of keeping my home directory on a separate partition.
    My computer always used to beat me at chess, but it is no match for me since I changed the competition to kick boxing

    Oh, the humanity! I never thought it would happen to me. How terrifying
    it is to see for yourself "*The Blue Screen of Death*".

    We have three people and three cats. At my desk *alone* I have 6
    machines, two of them laptops.

    Then my stepson has two - a laptop and a desktop. My wife uses a laptop.

    There's a somewhat dead Dell laptop on the bookshelf the other side of
    the room - if I find a motherboard for it, that'll be another test
    machine for me.

    Oh, and there's a spare motherboard on my desk that I didn't count in the
    machine count.

    Then we could get into my PC graveyard in the basement. Off the top of
    my head, 2 Compaq Prosignia servers (486s), a 386 that actually has been
    used a couple times in the last 5 years, two or three P-II/P-III
    generation machines, a Zeos "pocket PC" (which was actually far too big
    to be a "pocket PC" - V20 processor and a full keyboard, measured about
    8" long by 3.5" deep, LCD screen, and the only removable media was a PC
    card memory card.

    Probably at least 2 other machines could be built from various components
    laying around the basement.

    On the handheld front, one iPaq (with Familiar Linux on it), and one Dell
    Axim. The ZEOS machine probably better fits here, come to think. Oh,
    and there's a Palm Pro around here somewhere.

    Fully 5 of my machines are on UPSes (plural - two APC units here).

    Some might see this collection as a bit excessive. :-)
