SUSE is a German version of LINUX. They do not allow ISO downloads of their OS. You have to buy a boxed version and CD's. I gather the price includes updates and fixes. While SUSE charge for their version of LINUX the total cost is still well short of that other well known OS. If you really splurge out and buy the DVD set there are heaps of progs, most of which you probably will never use. The reviews of the recnt version of SUSE have been very favourable including one in THE REGISTER. Though they are German, SUSE have a large US presence so you shouldn't have trouble locating them.
