First steps with SuSE

My first Contact with LINUX was SuSE 6.2. A Friend gives me an CD-Bundle, and on the same Day i deleted my Hard-Disk, and installed SuSE. But after the Installation i make "Big Eyes". LINUX was very different to Windows. I fight the next days with LINUX, i read the Admin and the Userhandbook, and thought :"Shit". I was very afraid, and deleted Linux, and make my old Windows on it. But one year later i become an new CD through my subscribet Computer Magazine. I was interested, and killed my Windows. Then i installed Linux, and was happy. Many drivers was updated, and i can work with him. I learned more about Suse, and since that Day i have only Linux on my Computer. In the next months i tryed different Distributions. Mandrake, Debian, and Red Hat. But i comes back to SuSE. I like his stability, good usability and good feeling- :-)
