I have never tried SuSE 10, not even on somebody else's computer. However,
I am using SuSE 8.2 and 9.3 and I would warmly recommend both. Not to a
programmer, but even to my grandfather. It should be considered the most
valuable distributions among all, followed by Ubuntu, which better suits
Linux beginners or users that primarily/exclusively use an E-mail client
and a Web browser.
SuSE hasn't failed me for several years; eve since I first began using it,
in fact. This meant that high productivity could easily be taken for
granted. I never have to install anything either. SuSE has everything. In
fact, I never truly needed any support forums either. YaST simplifies one
of the main support woes, which is hardware and software installation.
I am beginning to see more people on campus, who decide to install and
slowly get accustomed to Linux. SuSE is very common, but others prefer
Ubuntu. Other distributions are a rarity and those who stick with them are
long-standing Linux enthusiasts, fanatics, and Gurus.
