If you site relies on MySQL and stores its sensitive data in a MySQL database, you will most definitely want to backup that information so that it can be restored in case of any disaster. The script that I liked the most is AutoMySQLBackup, because it doesn’t have any real requirements.

SuSE's success drew the attention of U.S. software giant Novell, which bought the German company in 2004. Novell now aims to become the world's leading Linux vendor.

That's the new kid in town, having had a lot of reviews even from its beta releases. Some people may want to get into it because of the hyped Xgl/Compiz, AppArmor, Xen and who knows what else (NX, anyone?). Some others might just consider to install it for a fully-fledged, user friendly, desktop GNU/Linux distro.
In my case, I was having SuSE 10.0 on my desktop PC, and I only considered upgrading from 10.0 to 10.1, with as little as possible disruption of the service.

It is designed to be easily expandable by via a system called 'MyDSL'. MyDSL packages come in several flavours and formats.
