Glad you got an open source option to work for you.  I know in some OSS 
quarters there is criticism of SuSe because of their proprietary tools, but 
I have been forced to use them in the recent past because of video 
hardware, and I was glad they were there.  Further, if it hadn't been for 
SuSe and Mandrake (now Mandriva) ten years ago, I would probably not be 
using Linux today.  They brought me into the fold.

In addition to donations, I like to try and help a little with whichever 
distro I happen to be using, currently Linux Mint (an Ubuntu derivative), 
so I read this list, but my ultimate loyalty is with GNU/Linux, so again, 
happy computing!
