before 10.0 there were several retail boxed sets:
1. SuSE Linux Personal (lower cost)
2. SuSE Linux Professional
3. SuSE Linux Professional Upgrade.
The Upgrade only had a single book, but was the complete set of DVD/CDs.

I think that the current one where there is one boxed set, it less confusing
to people. And, those who buy the boxed set have all the bits in there.
