"openSUSE is one of the most popular free-software-only
distributions, and it's jointly developed by Novell and members of
the community. In the first week of November the openSUSE
developers released installable live versions of the distro's
latest 10.3 release, one each for KDE and GNOME desktop
environments. The live versions are replicas of their install-only
cousins in terms of software, and apart from a few quirks, they
seem set to replace the older versions soon.
"openSUSE's current arsenal of releases include an install-only
DVD, two installable live CDs, and two install-only CDs. The live
CDs are currently available only for 32-bit hardware, whereas the
install-only versions can power 64-bit and PowerPC computers as
well. openSUSE 10.3 also distributes an add-on CD that packages
several non-open-source software, such as the Opera Web browser,
RealPlayer media player, and Acrobat PDF Reader. This CD is useful
for saving bandwidth if you plan to install openSUSE 10.3 on
multiple computers. If these permutations confuse you, use
openSUSE's distribution selection interface to find the version
that suits you..."
