Definitely, half the school computers have memory leaks at the moment anyway! POS!

 

and novell has so many evil watching programs like zenworks so they can stop you from playing games, and watch your desktop :angry:

well, i filled out the questionnaire to get my free SUSE stuff, and it arrived a few days ago. the package included 3 DVDs,

 

1. DVD 1A - Enterprise stuff

 

suse linux enterprise server 8

Nterprise Linux services 1.0

GroupWise 6.5.1

Red Carpet Enterprise Server 2.02

ConsoleOne

Linux services

 

2. DVD 1B - Suse Linux 8.2 Pro, Ximian Desktop

 

3. DVD 1C - Suse Linux 9,1 Pro

 

This is definitely the best way to get a copy of Suse Pro 9.1

 

Unfortunately, even with daily automated updates there are still quite a few bugs...

The offer has ended. I got mine and they are all full editions and not crippled. The only restriction is that you can't transfer them. I have also heard that you can't use them in a production environment.

Yep, they're full editions all right -- but I just can't get DVD3 (Suse 9.1 Pro) to work right. No matter what happens, it goofs up on installation in a dual head environment. the only fix is to pull one of the video cards, which seems like a suboptimal solution to me.

 

after pulling one of the video boards I've also run into lots of problems with all sorts of unexplainable lockups in Yast2.

 

IMHO, not ready for prime time.
