I have been using SuSE Linux
for a while now. It is really excellent but it is not meeting my needs. I am just too advanced for it. I want to have greater control over my machine than it provides easily for. Mandriva
is highly tweakable so I will return to using it.
I still highly recommend SuSE for anyone new to Linux. It has been really easy to use.
I am now downloading the free Mandriva 2007
DVD... 4.3GB ... this is gonna take a while. I plan on actually purchasing it since I like their stuff. I have been using Mandriva long enough that I feel I should give a little back. I have no legal obligation to pay; Linux doesn't work that way. This is strictly my ethics at play.
