I think you've missed the point of "Enterprise". With this package, SuSE
supplied the latest *stable* versions *at the time*. SLE8 has now been out for
some time so will inevitable be "out of date", although this isn't such an
issue for an Enterprise package, which will always place stability above
cutting-edge features. Also, SLE8 comes with a far better support package than
the consumer distro.
But if you did your research before making major purchasing decisions, you'd
know that. Sorry for the tone, but I can have little sympathy with someone
being surprised by the content of something they've bought when the details
are readily available - even proclaimed.
