Linux Noob has takes a quick look at Suse Linux Professional 9.3
I had the pleasure of spending a few days trying out Suse Linux Professional 9.3 (available from Novell's website). Suse Linux Professional 9.3 is definetly a growing contender for Linux on the desktop for businesses. I downloaded the 5 iso's (I assume there will also be a DVD version) and set about installing the new version from Novell. The last time I tried Suse Linux Professional it was version 9.1, and that was on a DVD set that Novell had shipped for free to me to anyone who filled out a simple form on their website last year. I must admit that at the time, I was very pleasantly surprised with the distro, I liked the way that you could use Java, Shockwave and MP3's out of the box with no need to locate/configure/compile plugins and howto's to get the fun parts of the distro to work. However, I didn't get the chance to spend too much time with it due to lack of time and the distro was already replaced by 9.2 at that stage so I quickly went back to my everyday Linux distro which currently is Fedora Core Release 3.
