"Today, SuSE Linux, the international technology leader and solutions provider in Open Source operating system (OS), announced the February 12th availability of the SuSE Linux 7.1 with the newly released Kernel 2.4. Only a few weeks after Linus Torvalds released Kernel 2.4, SuSE now presents the latest duo from Europe's best selling Linux distribution. SuSE Linux 7.1 Personal, offering selected software and documentation tuned to the requirements of Linux newcomers and desktop users, and SuSE Linux 7.1 Professional, providing experienced users with the applications needed for utilization as a server operating system."

"Kernel 2.4 is a further stepping stone towards "Enterprise Computing" and benefits both server and desktop applications. With its improved multi-processor support, an addressable RAM of up to 64 GB, and a 64-bit file system, Linux now enters a sphere which was previously reserved for commercial Unix variants. Desktop and notebook users benefit from enhanced USB support and simplified administration of hardware components, including plug & play for ISA cards and ACPI."

"SuSE will continue shipping the reliable 2.2 series kernels parallel to Kernel 2.4. Kernel 2.2.18 also boasts a remarkably improved USB support, version 3 of the network file system NFS, and integrated support of Intel's latest CPU Pentium IV."
