I agree with Don. For all those people who are whining, all I can say is
this... go compare the SuSE Professional Version (as it will now be
known) to the equivalent RedHat Distro. One, I think you'll find it even
more expensive and two, it's still the same poorly engineer RedHat distro
- it just has a few more packages, that users of SuSE just take for
Even at double the price, SuSE is a pretty good deal.
