SuSE 10 Announced... due in October
I was just curious who would be picking this one up retail? I've previously been a very ardent supporter of their retail offerings, but recently discovered I can do everything I need in CentOS for free... so I'm somewhat torn. I'm also interested to see if the quality of the 10.0 retail box is up to par with previous versions, since this is the first release with input from the OpenSuSE project.

I was really put off by the Novell Pro Desktop 9.x releases, as they felt stale even right after they were released. I've also never really taken to SuSE's method of package management -- YaST just didn't do the trick for me, as the automated downloads/installs never seemed to work.
Besides, I love Gentoo anyway
( Just to let you know, the "I'll Buy" poll option got misconstrued as a title by phpBB )
looks like you fixed the poll!

I am happy to support SuSE in a number of different ways, but this is probably a case where I'll wait to download.
My reason has nothing to do with SuSE. I shy away from bleeding edge in general (even if they call it prod) in favor of an older, more stable release. Let someone else work through the bugs.
That said, it sounds like the various 10 beta versions are pretty good.
