Stay away from OpenSuSE. Package management sucks.  It will probably
get better, but the new unified yast/redcarpet on 10.1 has hosed 2 of
my systems so badly that I ended up reinstalling (FC5 and Ubuntu).

Yum is dog slow and immature compared to apt, but it's fast and
reliable compared to current yast.

I haven't purchased SUSE since 9.x, so the commercial versions may be
better.

FWIW,
Barry
