Mine: I just loaded up Suse Linux 9.1 Professional. Overall I'd have to say that it isn't shabby (understatement). The X windows system that it uses by default, KDE, is very nice and stable. I have had the interface crash on me but since that was my second log on I just logged off of it and went back to the original (I was doing some work as root and was finished anyways). What I wish: 1. I wish that XMMS, a winamp like program, allowed me to have scrolling titles in the taskbar area. I also hope I can someday find a plug-in for it that will allow me to use hot keys to change songs. Configuration of the program is a little different than that of winamp but I have been able to set everything but the scrolling of the song title so far. 2. I wish that Control+Alt+Delete would bring up a MS Windows Task Manager-like program. What I really like: 1. KDE wallet: A built in password keeping program. Great Idea!!! 2. Pretty much everything is built in. Need to write a paper/give a presentation/balance the books? Gotcha covered with Open Office. Need to edit some images? GIMP. Browse the web? Konqueror (which has a spell checker built into it BTW). Compression? Lots of programs for that. CD burning / DVD burning, Real Player, Flash, Java Runtimes, TV, play AVIs, MP3s, OGGs, MPGs? Done! 3. Suse trimmed down the default load of the system to just a few programs total, unlike Mandrake which throws in the kitchen sink along with 15 programs for each subject. Simple is sometimes better. Cost: The version I loaded up costs about 90 USD but you can get a personal version for 30 USD and down the free version for FREE. Something very bad: For some reason my Audigy2 was muted by default. I ran the system for two days with out sound until I chatted online (IM program included in the distro) with a linux experienced friend. He pointed me to a command line program, alsamixer, and I unmuted my card. It was very nice to finally hear sound.
