Actually, I rang up yesterday afternoon to price Suse and the guy told me
they only had 7.0 in stock. I asked him for a quote on that and that was
£43.20 so, unless they devalued the distro because it was out of date, it
looks like our friends in HF are excellant value. Maybe they deserve a
mention in the Vendors list if it can be established that their prices are
always round the 40-45 mark for the professional distros... or even 10-15
quid below the norm.
