color printing ,I dont ee it as any sort of enhansed printer serice.

These are the kind of improvements that can trickle over to other distros.
So far I have found when suse lacks in integration and simplicity , it
seems to make up for in allowing you do do a whole lot of advanced stuff in
yast. It does need some improvment , especialy in printer setup. Have you
seen the esp printdriver system. Real neet and real easy. Beats the pants
off of suse in printing
