SuSESuSE (typically pronounced soose, or susie; although properly pronounced Zoo-suh) is one of the major Linux distributions and is produced in Germany. As of release 9 SuSE offers a helpful installation program (YaST2), administration GUIs such as KDE 3.1.4 and GNOME 2.2, online updates and more. SuSE 9 includes support for resizing NTFS partitions during installation. This allows for SuSE Linux to co-exist with existing Windows 2000 or XP systems. Another addition is the ability to detect and install drivers for many of the common winmodems shipped with OEM desktop and laptop systems.
SuSE comes in two different flavors. The Personal edition is geared toward the home user (3 CDs) and the Professional edition (5 CDss and 2 DVDs) is geared more toward the corporate / professional user. The major differences between the Personal and Professional version of SuSE Linux are additional networking and client software. SuSE is sold through computer software retail stores, book stores, and online like many other Linux distributions.
Unlike many other Linux distributions, it is not possible to produce and sell cheaper versions of the SuSE CDs, due non GPL license restrictions on YAST, SuSE's propietary installation and configuration tool. See  for detailed information about what you can and cannot do with YAST.
