Sorry that I am not in the jargon loop.
I very much liked Suse: it seemed well integrated, had everything I
needed and - ok, not a valid reason - I liked the look and feel of
it. It is my first Linux distribution and the only non-cluster
distribution that I know in any detail. However, I don't use it
solely as typewriter, game boy or web browser. The people in my field
don't develop for 5 year old distributions/kernels. Computers are an
integral part of my work, but not everything. Switching distributions
or personalizing a server environment might be a snip for you, but it
is quite a pain for me.
I would rather stay with the Suse distribution and update when I
change jobs later this year. I guess, that is not going to happen.
Debian certainly sounds like the hot ticket in town right now, but I
also heard that it is not necessarily for the faint at heart.
It's a pity to hear that Suse is going big business and is dropping
those time-intense and expensive fringes.
Would I go back to Suse when I got to set up my first server/cluster
in the future? Don't know.
Best wishes from freezing cold Chicago,
PS: There is an acronym that I always wanted to know: What does SuSE stand for?
