...SuSE 7.3 also offers a network installation option, with which you can define a default desktop image and then deploy it to desktops across a network SuSE's installation routine can detect the presence of other installed operating systems and install itself alongside them cleanly and easily. Such flexibility lets you migrate to Linux-based desktops gradually and in a highly manageable fashion.

The distribution is equally simple to set up on the server side. The majority of SuSE's server administration options can be configured easily via the YaST2 Control Center, SuSE's excellent graphical configuration utility; for example, the YaST2 GUI lets you easily set up a firewall, define user accounts and security policies. YaST2 automates most configuration procedures but administrators still can tweak server parameters via the command line, if necessary.

SuSE Linux 7.3 is well prepared for corporate computing, offering support for a broad range of server architectures and significant advances in usability for both administrators and end users. Companies looking for a solid server platform--and perhaps even a desktop replacement for Windows--would be well advised to evaluate SuSE 7.3's stellar offerings."
