I have SuSE on two machines, but none of them runs version 10 and I never
ever downloaded SuSE (or /any/ Linux distribution for that matter). It's a
case of CD burning by the vendor or re-use in our Division where _finally_,
all machines are set up to become dual-boot.

I am even happy enough with 8.1, which I have used since 2003. it comes to
show that Linux as it were several years ago stands the test of time. I see
no reason to bump up, despite the painlessness of the upgrade (home
directories stay in tact)
