Great.......a chance to restart a distro flame war ;-)
When starting out...it is sometimes useful to have all the software to
hand. And downloads are getting very big.....the complete SuSE 6.4
distribution has around 8G. In Belfast a fair number of us use Mandrake,
although SuSE is growing in popularity. It is well put together, and
stable. I personally have tried RedHat and Mandrake but my favourite is SuSE.
