That's the easy bit ...
they get it from SuSE within the Eurozone ... (they *are* a German company
after all) why ship transatlantic twice ?
From SuSE's site ...
SuSE Linux 7.1 Personal Order no.: 2004-21GB EUR 46,- 3 CD-ROMs
SuSE Linux 7.1 Professional Order no.: 2014-21GB EUR 66,- 7 CD-ROMs, 1 DVD
46 EUR = 36.22 IEP
66 EUR = 51.98 IEP
Hmm Cheaper than SuSE themselves ? Must be a bulk discount or some such ...
that or their pricing is screwey !
(probably got billed for the Personal and got the Professional or something)
