    * 888110,

    in addition to the links caf gave you, let me give you a short overview on Suse.

    Suse is owned by Novell. Novell offers two Enterprise Linux versions based on Opensuse: SLES, the Suse Linux Enterprise Server, and SLED, the Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop. Both cost you an annual fee, and you are entitled to updates and support from Novell. The support lifecycle for the SLE product line is (I think) 5 or even 7 years.

    Then there is Opensuse, the community project. That's what we deal with here. Opensuse is more "up to date" than SLED, more recent kernel, more recent applications. Support for Opensuse is community based, means, you can come here and ask us (or any other forum you like, although of course we are the best ;-). You'll receive automatic updates for Opensuse for two years after the release. After that, you have to upgrade to a more recent version.

    So, unless you need paid support, grab a copy of Opensuse 11.1 and give it a go. Have fun!

    Uwe

    No free CD's or DVD's here.

    You need to choose between Download or Purchase.

    If you can't download and can't afford the purchase, then maybe you'll be lucky and get someone to download it for you, or even send you a copy if they live in the same country.

    A good source too is Linux Magazines.
