    I don't think so - at least not officially. There's some blurb on the web site that says they cannot distribute it because of the licensing conditions on some of the non-free software it includes.

    You can find it if you look around (ie warez sites and p2p networks).

    suse 8.2 - ebay!

    There are several guys on ebay selling cdroms with distro's - I just bid $1.50 for a 5 cd Suse 8.2 pro set. S&H was $6.


    It isn't free, but alot less than paying retail!

    Actually, they have the full 8.2 distro available, albeit without some of the software packages that aren't free/open source software.

    ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/ftp.suse.com/i386/8.2/

    I believe that's one of the ftp links to download it.

    They dont provide iso images, just ftp installs. The only iso images are for their live evaluations.
    I think they are just trying to get people to buy their product by ensuring that iso images arent available.

    Oh yeah, I forgot that SuSE includes a lot of non-free stuff. Sorry about that, then. Is it only I, though, who think that it feels kind of wrong to use a Linux distro that isn't 100% free (note free as in FSF's defintion, not as in gratis)?

    I don't mind using a non 100% free distribution, even though I admire the FSF and their stance. To put it bluntly I don't really have a choice unless I want to cut my nose off to spite my face since I have an nForce based motherboard and an nVidia graphics card, for which the drivers aren't free.

    I'm also a professional software developer that would like to get paid at some point in time, and to be quite honest - support isn't the most interesting of jobs...
