    Love the new version. Finally got a chance to install it the other nighit. They just keep making their versions better and better.

    I really like what Novell is doing with them as well. Mono 1.0 is out, the Evolution Exchange connector is open source :eek3:, they're offering their personal edition as a download option again, and they're really trying hard to revolutionize the desktop in corporation environments. Wonder what else they have planned. It's a GREAT product.

    I was talking about an ISO of the Profesional. Didn't know if it was available for download legally.

    You can do net installs of the pro version from what I heard.

    I thought the FTP Install only does the Personal version. Can someone confirm? :x:

    As far as I'm aware, only the personal is available for free (legally). If you know of anyone who has the pro version, and could make an iso for you, that's another story. ;)

    From the people I asked. Suse doesn't do iso's of the pro version, so you can't get an iso of it legally. But they do allow ftp installs of both personal and pro. Here's a walk through on how to do it.

    Have fun with linux. :)

    The Pro version just has more bundled software IIRC

    SuSE > *.desktop distro

    :werd: After a brief jaunt with Gentoo, I'm about to re-install SuSE 9.1.

    BTW, there are (legal) torrents on www.suprnova.org for SuSE 9.1 Pro from what I've heard. It's five CDs.

    Strange enough, after a brief trail with suse I'm going back to debian. The only legal iso is the one for the personal version, no legal pro versions. 5 cd's does sound about right though, the only disks I've seen for 9.1 have all been dvd's.

    All versions are legal, it's GPL software :squint:

    Why not? Torrent was invented specifically for distributing linux ISOs.

    It's possible they might have a copyright on the cd layout, even though the software is all free. That's how it is with OpenBSD.

    :dunno: Could be. Either way, they're available and at least close to legal. The net installer is 100% legal anyway, and it's nice because it's only a 23MB ISO.

    From the SUSE Website
    So if they don't make these iso's available, they way I look at it is the ones that are floating around aren't legal. :dunno: I'm keepiong the 64 bit on my laptop, but the desktop has gone back to debian.

    Edit: Yeah all the net installers are legal, the full install disks smell fishy to me
