Novell (Suse Linux) swings back at Microslop
Posted 19 November 2004 - 12:05 AM
I suppose I should add that Novell Netware was the first NOS that I used and (later) administered, it's good to see them back in the fight, so to speak.
Microsoft has made an empire from "good-enough" software. I, for one, don't want "good-enough" any more.

"Good enough" for what ? Spyware ?
Ever look at those MRUs (Most Recently Used files)? Before I learned to delete them, mine had long lists of "visited URLs"
and "Most recently run" programs" ,most of which I've never
heard of ,much less used, which background programs send to MS
on a regular basis.This is done "silently" ,meaning you don't
know it's being done.
BTW,I only use SUSE 9.1 for internet now.SUSE handles those
linmodem drivers pretty well except for 'Risq Modular' which
may work for someone who knows what he/she is doing.
