The upcoming SUSE LINUX 9.2 has yet to hit the retail stores, but the product's two live CDs (with either KDE or GNOME) and a live DVD are now available for free download: "This directory contains three different versions of Live media for SUSE LINUX Professional 9.2.

Any difference between this and the paid-for version other than documentation and support?

Their servers must be getting hammered for these downloads as I'm showing a 6 hour timeframe and I'm on a 3 meg cable feed. ;Q

Current speed... 30kb and dropping. :(

I believe these are live/run from CD/dvd isos without any installer.You should be able to do an FTP install of Suse 9.2 soon.I downloaded the two CD iso's.I don't have a DVD writer but I do have a CD writer.I want to compare the Gnome desktop to the KDE desktop.With the size of the DVD iso it looks like it might have more software than just the two desktops on the CD's.The very best live CD I have found is Kanotix 9A http://kanotix.de .Mepis 2004.03 is a good one too.Both have installers.

Washington, D.C. is correct, this is just the live version of SUSE 9.2, which runs off of the cd/dvd. There is nothing to partition or install. Using the live version is a good way to check out the distro without having to partition or install anything on your HDD, it is also a decent way to verify that your hardware configuration is compatible with the distro.

SUSE 9.2 is scheduled to be released in November, I'm assuming that SUSE will offer the Personal Edition as a free download just like they did for SUSE 9.1.

Mepis 2004.04 has just been released. http://www.mepis.org This is a great live CD that can be installed. I still prefer Kanotix for it's true Debian kernel though.

I think I found the differences between the Suse 9.2 CD's and the DVD.The DVD supports more languages.The CD's have only English and German.
