What if it doesn't pass the test, and you want to try again a year or
two later? You can't.

you need susbsciption only to test the update mechanism. you can test the
distro as long as you want without that.

and don't be too demanding, trying a commercial product for a very long
time mean using it!

I'm thinking of the cases where there is a bug that impedes the product
from working for you. You have to wait for a release pack or a new version.

It is not a continuous evaluation: you try it once, fails, and a year later
you try again to see if the problems were solved. I have had bugs in
openSUSE taking two or more years to be solved.

Yes, it is true that you can't do that with every business product. With
some, you can. And with linux, we expect it.


Then there is the case of the will be professional that uses sles for his
own training. He is not making a profit, yet. Only if he is hired and the
job includes maintaining sles will he buying it - and not him, but the
business he now works for.
