"Okay, that's it, we can all go home now."

"SuSE Linux 7.1, which was released a bit late in the United States, has finally hit the shelves and if there was ever a distribution Linux users could point to and say "this is the one that can replace Windows," then this is the one."

"Bold words? Hardly. I mean, let's face it, any Linux user has always known that the penguin can run rings around most anything that comes out of Redmond. But getting this across to the hypnotized Window users of the world has been difficult, to say the least. SuSE's latest offering is a platform you could install out of the box, plunk a Windows user in front of it, and they could work with it. Not tweak it, not play with it, work with it. This is the distribution Corel Linux wanted to be: easy to use for newbies, with all of the power of Linux."

"The interesting thing here that there has not been a huge dramatic change since the SuSE's 7.0 release. You won't be looking at this and wondering why SuSE changed everything, because in truth, they hardly changed anything."
