"For me, getting SuSE 7.3 Personal installed and running was a lot like having a baby -- it was painful and took a long time. But baby, am I ever happy with the result.

...A rank newbie is going to have some problems getting SuSE 7.3 Personal installed and configured. It makes me cringe to think how many people are picking this up off the shelf and expecting to just go home and load it up. Some things in SuSE 7.3 are so much easier -- like setting up a network card and configuring a cable or dialup connection. But the X11 configuration is going to stop many in their tracks. No wonder SuSE says it will take four days or so for them to reply to emailed support requests.

If the neophytes can persevere, however, they'll be richly rewarded with the excellence of SuSE 7.3 and KDE 2.2.1. This is one pretty baby, and so smart -- don't you want one of your own?"
