So because they released a browser fix that you alone seem to be having...
Wait I forgot, all those usenet news sites saying the same things.... So
all of it is untested and buggy?

Yea, that's logical... I've watched you sit and whine about how your
browser is all broken and then threaten to use Fedora.... Lol, have you
ever actually USED Fedora? My God, you couldn't get up2date to download the
updates without it freezing... You have to download like 10 at a time so it
doesn't freeze up on you and then you have to sart it again hoping it won't
freeze again.

Lol, you go install Fedora and tell me it's as unstable as SUSE is. I've
never used a Linux distro as bad as Fedora. The updates in SUSE are what
you're whining about, and after 9000 times you won't email SUSE, you know,
the people who can do something about this? EMAIL THEM ALREADY. How can
they fix something they don't know?

While you wait, install Fedora. Then try and update the whole system at
once like you can with SUSE and Slackware, and come back and tell us it
was worse.

I have almost 100 OSs, everything from DOS to Windows to Unix to Linux,
SUSE remains my top, with Slackware in second place. Free BSD may catch up
with Slackware some day when they realise people don't all use a common set
of hardware and actually support more hardware.
