    How does Open Office run on 9.3 (O believe it comes with the 2.0 beta) I've heard that OOo 2.0 beta was a little unstable, but that was a while ago

    I haven't used much of it yet (only the word processor) and it seems to be fine so far. I will get back to you if I encounter any problems.

    MadPenguin releases "preview reviews" for SuSE before each major release, so they're obviously getting something special from Novell. Hardware and game companies do this a lot too. They send out a pre-release of their gadget/game to reviewers so that by the time the product hits the market there's (hopefully) a bunch of positive buzz about it.

    All the packages installed with SuSE 64 have been compiled with and for the x86_64 architecture, as well as the libraries (which have their own /lib64/ directory so as not to break 32-bit apps that rely on /lib/). The kernel itself is also compiled 64-bit.

    There are still some 32-bit packages I'm sure, but the vast majority are specifically x86_64. I know all my commercial games are x86 (32-bit).

    any ideas on where to get it from?
    Do you have 9.1 Personal or Professional? If you have Pro you can install it off the CDs using YaST. You can also point YaST to the SuSE repositories (sorry, never done it myself) and pull any packages you need off there. You might also consider using apt.


    BTW - I've added the 9.3 review to my site. It's pretty much the same as the above, with minor tweaks.
    I just printed your review since I am going to buy Suse 9.3 and I would like the URL for your site.
    Thanks
