Good luck to them
Good luck to them. I've been a (desktop) SuSe user on and off since SuSe 8, I've also tried Mandrake (yes before Mandriva) and Ubuntu and a couple of others. I've never understood the Ubuntu hype. But never mind, it's all good, so long as it helps people realise there is an alternative to Vista.
Meanwhile at work I actually use (open)SuSe as a soft realtime kernel on a high speed comms box. It just works. We'd tried it with MontaVista on a nicely designed little ARM box but the hardware vendors wouldn't let you reconfigure/reflash their kernel ("free" software indeed) which needed some tweaks e.g. for 1ms tick and fully preemptible kernel. So we gave up on that and used SuSe on an obsolete Dell box instead. Piece of cake, do the menuconfig thing and then it just worked straight away.
I like SuSe, even if I don't know how to capitalise it on any given day.
