Let me get this straight. SUSE 9.1 Personal has everything Professional
does except the commercial stuff and manuals?
I downloaded the Personal ISO (which I'm happily using) and have been
thinking of trashing Windows (why not, it does it to me all the time) and
installing Linux as the main OS. Can I do this with the one CD of
Personal? Someone told me that Professional was 5 CD's. Can I actually
use Personal and simply download the few "missing" programs that I want to
use instead of getting Professional? That would be great if I could. The
faster I can get rid of Windows the better.
