I can't compare to RH9, but I *can* compare it to SuSE 9.0

Don't switch to SuSE.  Trust me on this one.  Baaad juju.  After seing
what was available, I decided to go with SuSE for my first real exposure
to Linux in 6+ years.  (And I had no experience with a Linux GUI at that

It wasn't more of a SWITCH than it was just trying to determine if it was a good 'average user' fit since Suse does allow repartitioning of drives on the fly. Other than that, I didn't do much with it.

If you needs are met 100% by what's available on the distro CDs, then SuSE
could work for you. But adding anything else? Damn near impossible.
There are some things I *couldn't* get installed under SuSE, that were a
breeze with Fedora. I'm not the only one wih those problems either.

On the positive side, there are more GUI controls for things.  So if
that's what you're looking for, then maybe it's for you.

Nah GUI controls just get in the way. If I wanted more of those I'd stay with Windows. :)

Also you can *forget* right now about editing files by hand and expecting
them to stay that way, and work correctly.  The SuSE likes to rewrite
stuff on you without warning.

Without warning? Not good. But then I didn't do any hand editing in Suse.

In short, the problems I had with SuSE 9.0 were great enough that I
abandoned it, even though I paid the $80 for the Professional version.

Using Fedora, I've had a *lot* fewer problems.


Thanks for your honest opinion on that. I think I'll stick with RH.
