"My copy of SuSE 6.3 had arrived, just as the PR people had promised. Like Red Hat 6.1, this version of SuSE boasts a new graphical installer. I couldn't wait to see how the two competing GUIs compared."

"This is the first time I've found a graphical installer that I think is better than its command-line interface. In this case, it does improve and simplify the installation process. The screens are well designed and they gave me much more confidence that some serious thought had gone into the installer than did the Red Hat 6.1 GUI.

"SuSE 6.3 has the best GUI installation I've experienced yet. Granted, I haven't tried them all, but it is head and shoulders above Red Hat 6.1's, and better than the last TurboLinux installation I tried..." ... this version represents real progress... In fact, I've decided to use SuSE 6.3 on my new server instead of Red Hat."
