Love to hear other peoples opinions. I guess I have become used to unix/irix and linux envorment that editing text files and such is second nature. Click a button edit a file, what ever. Had trouble with windows boxes, linux boxes or sgi's all the same. In the end there is very little reason for me to use a wndows box, but I have one at home...need to have every (not every but most) platform to test and run stuff.
suse does (or did) have fantasic support) More software sounds good.
Ether way you go you are bound to have some issue, where is windows or linux. None are perfect. Only amigaOS got it right... LOL....
