However, I don't like the fact that you can't buy updates anywhere except
from SuSE. I like to support my local linux vendor
(www.linuxemporium.co.uk), but since the only versions I can buy are the full
boxed sets, I skip a version or two (e.g. 6.2 -> 6.4 -> 7.2). If SuSE would
allow sales of update versions through resellers which specifically request
it (generally pro-linux/linux-specific resellers), they would have a more
contiguous revenue stream, IMHO.
