Beta for some I suppose, but for the most of us, it's a solid, stable
package! As long as you get or want the latest stuff or just a plain
old version junkie, you'll always be a beta tester. Now Debian might
have a package for you, if you want an older safe Linux! ;o)
Flakey, no, I don't think so and if you feel like you are paying for
flakey programs, then maybe there should be an individual price
attached to each to give you a clue to the fact you aren't buying
those. You only pay for the package that SuSE has spent so much time
putting together for us. "Full" price might be a bit more than any of
us could afford. ;o)
