Re: [SLE] SuSE 7.1 vs 7.2 side-by-side comparison, please?
Personally, as a notebook user I shall be upgrading this release and I shall
be recomending we roll it out to our other systems as soon as it shows it's
stable enough. There IS too many security and notebook needed updates in
this step to miss, the alternate is to download patches, etc and install. I
do {:-)} prefer if SuSE does it for me.

Normally I look at at least one release step skipped, but not this time and
I hope they put the "bits" for win4lin in at least one of the major kernals
even if it's 2.2.19 and not 2.4.4. The Vmware Licence is just too much {:-(}
for a person to buy down here in Australia even if the package is better.
