"Here's are my first impressions with SuSE Linux. I installed SuSE Linux 6.4 for PowerPC on a Power Macintosh 6500 and an original iMac. SuSE Linux requires a PCI PowerMac; 64 MB RAM with a 1 GB hard drive is a realistic setup."

"Documentation: The printed manual is very helpful in getting you started, but is not enough to solve typical installation problems. The German language version of the manual is also poorly written. You need at least basic knowledge of Linux...."

"Summary: SuSE Linux is a very interesting UNIX alternative for those who don't have the money or hardware to use Mac OS X Server and can't wait for Mac OS X. It is perfect for a network server and the server tools included would cost hundreds of dollars on the Macintosh platform. Linux is also a great environment for programmers, it is probably less attractive as a desktop alternative to the Mac OS."
