    Seems everything is free, fill in your name address and other details and answer a few questions about what type of user you are. No credit card details needed.

    I got one of these or something similar at their booth in Linux World Expo.

    It was supposedly a fully functional "Eval Kit". It was total BS and was not fully functional.

    It was basically a server install with an admin front end that looked like a glorified Webmin setup.

    When I created regular users, it wouldnt even allow me to log in as them.

    Technically, it may have been functional but it was not useable.

    I signed up just for the hell of it, that said it's in the mail. This is kinda cool. But I am a bit wary being as it is SuSE................

    I was reading a book by torvalds today, and he mentions that he uses Suse at home... weird...

    (this was 2000 though...)

    Thats cool about Torvalds. I would expect him to use a hybridized-as-all-hell type machine. Then again he is a family man, he probably doesn't spend as much time hacking away at Linux in his free time since it is his full time job.

    On the other hand I can see Alan Cox running some insanely stable 2.2.X kernel with a minimulistic windowmaker session on a machine that went out of date 10 years ago.
