Tux Machines (TM)-specific
I recently installed the open source software (OSS) version of SUSE Linux 10.0 on my Gateway M520CS laptop computer, and would like to share my impressions of the product so far. This is the third distribution that has been installed on this laptop, with Mandrake Linux 10.1 and Fedora Core 4 both preceding SUSE 10.0. SUSE 10.0 outshines both of the other distributions so far.
Both Mandrake Linux 10.1 and Fedora Core 4 installed fine on this machine, but both had problems. Let's delve into these problems a bit before we look at whether SUSE did any better.
