ABSTRACT
This article informs that Novell Inc.'s suse linux professional 9.3 is an excellent general-purpose operating system. However, SuSE Linux AG Professional 9.3 is perhaps most impressive as a platform on which developers and system administrators can evaluate new technologies. Version 9.3 leads the Linux distribution pack in its support for Mono and Xen. Although SuSE's more commercial nature is reflected in fewer community resources than Debian and Fedora have, including the number of third-party software repositories available, SuSE Linux Professional 9.3 offers a much more polished out-of-the-box experience. Fedora is the vanguard distribution for Red Hat Enterprise Linux and is always up-to-date, but the fact that Red Hat hasn't yet gotten serious about delivering a slick desktop operating system shows in Fedora, which requires tweaking to bring it into optimal desktop running condition. Beyond open-source rivals, SuSE Linux Professional 9.3 compares very well with Windows, shipping along with a thick selection of Linux-compatible applications. INSETS: SuSE Linux Professional 9.3;Keep your eye on Ubuntu.
