I have more than 20 working systems, most of which are multiboot. Included
are Xandros, Fedora, Mandriva, Kubuntu, SUSE, Debian, OS/2 & doz. The only
two run 24/7 are OS/2 & SUSE. Xandros and Fedora get only nominal uptime. Of
the rest, Kubuntu gets the least.

SUSE was best Linux before Ubuntu even existed. Its purchase by the blunderer
Novell hasn't yet managed to ruin it. Novell kept a lot of great German
people to keep SUSE good, and a competent community that predates Ubuntu's.
IMO its opensuse (user) mailing list generates a lot better good answers
given to good questions asked ratio than ubuntu-user list does.

IOW, different strokes for different folks, while FUD useless to all.
