I hope, you can convince SuSE ASAP. Especially since SuSE is internationally

That's what I did. But unfortunaltely, there are some Texts, that engulf the
german Umlauts (because the texts are not UTF-8). As long as the system does
not support UTF-8 per default, the system is not sound.

BTW: Isn't RedHat entirely based on UTF-8? Initially, the good german support
was my reason to choose SuSE...
