I'm not a 'latest hardware' type of guy.
Both my regular readers will recall that I pull old, discarded stuff out of the
"Closet or Anxieties", mostly to prove that up-to-date Linux can run on hardware
that up to date windows can't, and that the forced discard of hardware, even if
the tax man does allow for depreciation of same, is environmentally unfriendly.
You really don't need the Maxxxxximum Tower with 32G of ram and an 850 Watt
power supply when the old low profile with the miniature 200Watt supply and 4G
of RAM is quite adequate.

But, as you say John, SLES has no business interest in the latest kernels and
all they can offer. Like with SSDs, better packet handling (aka 'faster'),
robustness and more.

I also look toe the fabulous documentation that ARCH produces, which I often
have to read and interpret when the equivalent for Suse is missing.

Maybe a change is in order.
