Is that a big deal? WinXP has done the same thing for years. Hell, Win2K has done it since... well, 2000.

I bet cd's will come around soon though.. last i heard yast was or is supposed to be gpl'ed.. I bet iso's will be available after that..

if you really want to install it.. rsync you the mirror for a couple days

It took about 5 hours to install from ftp.suse.com (probably would of went faster if I used an alternate mirror overseas ones are generally the faster ones), i did a pretty good size install and it was 3.5GB. I like that fact that nvidia and ati drivers are included.. realplayer is included... A lot of apps and games are included with the distro. It is very nice...

but... SuSE only has integration with KDE :yuk: If I am going to use a desktop it will be gnome (suse does not setup any of the menu items in gnome).. otherwise I will use fluxbox.

If you like KDE, suse kicks.. if its your first time to use linux.. suse kicks. But I will stick with slackware

As for fedora... I will give it a try soon!

I've also liked fc2

Very nice install. Also nice it already has the 2.6 kernel.

I've liked it so for for some snort box installs.

Good help page btw
