SUSE Linux 10 – buy or download ?

Actually with the opening to the masses of the SuSE project by Novell we have assisted to a growing confusion about what’s availabe and what isn’t.

Essentially – as you can read yorself – on the download page of OpenSuSE it’s written:

The Evaluation edition of SUSE Linux contains some proprietary components such as Adobe Acrobat Reader, RealNetworks RealPlayer, Sun Java Runtime Environment and Macromedia Flash Player.

The Evaluation edition does not time out in any way.

If you prefer you can download and use the Open Source Software (OSS) edition of SUSE Linux 10.0 that includes only open source components.

Roger Whittaker has created a complete list of what packages you can find in the dvd “boxed”, in the downloadable GM dvd and in the official mirrors to semplify the search.
