9.2 is working fine for everything I want at the moment, thanks... it was 8.2 which wasn't handling the LiDE20 properly.
I usually buy the ".2" releases of SuSE as a) that gives a decent gap between upgrades and b) they seem to be the most stable (remember all the gripes about 8.1 ?:?)
I buy the boxed sets because I like to have some treeware to refer to if things aren't working right, and it puts a small amount back into the community (I pay SuSE, they keep paying people to do more development). And unlike that other OS, I can install my purchase on multiple machines, so it works out at a relatively small cost per machine.
My next general update will be 10.2, although I'd like to try Gentoo on one machine in the meantime... if only there were another 24 hours in each day !
