SuSE Linux

So, goodbye RedHat, hello SuSE. Specifically, SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 8.0, SLES for short. (Are people who run it SLESbians?) First impressions: The installer is horrible. RedHat managed to detect the right graphics drivers for the (5 years old) S3 hardware, why couldn’t SuSE? Why does the help tell me to use + and – to select and deselect things, when they don’t actually work on any of the stuff it‘helpfully’ auto-selected for me?
