    You can sell Open Source all you want, especially if it is GPL which Linux falls under...

    You just have to give the code to your customers when you do so. SUSE is not available for download because its installer is not Open Source. The Linux Kernel, the Applications and such stuff is open source but the program to put it on a PC is not, it was written in-house by SUSE.

      You might want to try Gentoo

      Their update system is called portage. Once you install the system, any future updates are installed online through portage, including upgrades to new Gentoo releases, no need for new installation/upgrade CD's.

      The advantages over Suse/RH/Fedora/Mandrake/ etc. is that Gentoo compiles everything on your system, so it's optimized for your machine, processor and hardware.

      The disadvantage is that it has no GUI installation tool, and requires knowledge of your hardware to set it up. But thy have extensive online documentation, and a very active support forum.

      It's free, and community-run, like Debian.

        Okay, I've got Mandrake 10. But, I'm having a problem.

        Okay, I've got my screen res. set as 1024x768. However, I don't see the entire screen, I've got to "move the screen" with my mouse. How do I make it normal?

        Oh yeah, I don't see my video card up here, only "All-In-Wonder", and "All-In-Wonder Pro", and it only allow's me to set 16 million dollars 24bit.

        How do I get 32?

          24bit is the highest in linux, like mac.

          Sounds like your monitor was not configed to allow that high of a resolution

            SuSE is one of the easiest distros I've used. I prefer RedHat Enterprise and Fedora Core over SuSE though.
            Let the flames begin.

              You can download a SUSE LINUX 9.2 ftp version from It is a small ISO-File which you can burn on cd. You get a boot disk and then you can install SUSE LINUX 9.2 via FTP-Download.
              The complete SUSE Linux 9.1 is available at

                Well, I downloaded Mandrake 10, only installed two CD's though. Windows crashed during the Third CD's burning section.
