1-0 out of 5 stars Do NOT buy this product to UPGRADE your old SuSE!!!!!
In general, I think SuSE has always produced a great product. I've been using SuSE since version 6.4 and It's been my primary home operating system since version 8.0. I do not use Windows at all. I'm currently running SuSE Linux 8.2 and I'm very satisfied with it. I was anxiously awaiting SuSE 9.1 and the new SuSE kernel in the inexpensive "personal" edition that I've always used to update my SuSE Linux O/S.

I soon discovered that Novell has changed things!!! !!!YOU CAN NO LONGER UPDATE YOUR SuSE Linux OPERATING SYSTEM USING THE PERSONAL EDITION!!!! I'm not sure if this changed in version 9.0 or within this version, but it was a shock to me. I've always used the inexpensive personal edition and supplemented it with downloaded software from various sites online. To all long-time SuSE Users considering buying this version, be aware that you will need to have the "update" or "professional" edition to update your current SuSE Linux system!

I'm very disappointed by this change, particularly since I spent about $30 on a version that I have no use for whatsoever. The box should have been clearly labeled to indicate that this version CANNOT BE USED FOR UPDATING SYSTEMS and I would strongly recommend that Novell place this prominently on the box in the future!!!

For USERS NEW TO SuSE AND/OR Linux WHO WANT TO GIVE IT A TRY, I can recommend this edition however. The "Live CD" makes trying SuSE painless and SuSE is still probably the best desktop Linux around for the price that's *relatively* easy to install, configure, and enjoy. As for those users complaining that it doesn't work with or like Windows, I think they just wanted a cheap Windows knock-off, but Linux is something different and has to be approached as a separate thing with its own merits. A new user will have to learn Linux just as they once had to learn Windows. It's an adjustment, but it's not so bad if you can devote a little time and energy to learning it.

Novell folks reading this review: LABEL THIS CLEARLY NOT FOR UPDATING, DANGIT!!!! IF I EVER WASTE MONEY LIKE THIS AGAIN, I WILL BOYCOTT YOUR PRODUCT!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Good Distro
I'm a bit surprised at the negative reviews written before this one. I do not believe this distro is anywhere near as bad as these reviewers are making it out to be. OK, here is what I got:

My computer is a personal built Intel P4 (2ghz) with 512mb RAM, 80 gig hard drive, GeForce 4 video card, SoundBlaster live sound card, NetGear ethernet card, LiteOn CDRW, LiteOn DVDRW-that's the essentials.

Now I have my hard drive partitioned roughly in half with Windows 2000 on the first partition. I installed this distro to the second partition. No problems what so ever. I can boot into windows or suse just fine with no problems. Now I used the default settings on the install (they are just fine), but you can change stuff around. If you do change where and how it loads, be sure to know what you are doing first. I suspect that is how people get themselves in trouble then blame the product. The default settings work great, so don't change'em unless you really need to.

All the programs are there, from web browsing to Open Office. The interface is nice and clean yet it is still very customizable. Open Office has opened all my windows office files without difficulty.

My wife, who couldn't care less about computers other then web surfing and email, has no problem using SUSE. She took to it right away and hasn't had any problems finding her way around. This distro has organized the programs very well and I've found things easy to find.

I think SUSE did a very fine job. I've used alot of other distros, but I always come back to SUSE sooner or later.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as 9.0 Personal
Updated Review (17 July 2004): I've been using Suse 9.1 on the IBM 600x for a few weeks now, and I think I may have been wrong about the distro. It is working real well now. I used the wireless driver, ndiswrapper and now have wireless connectivity without the linuxant driver. I had to go out to the internet to configure it, but, after some simple web searches, you can make it work.

I installed Suse 9.1 on a Thinkpad 600x and didn't get that sound anymore, so, I was wrong about Suse 9.1 creating the noise. My apologies. But, when I tried doing some simple like MAKE, it wasn't installed by default. Wireless is still a pain to install, the easiest way to do this is to use Linuxant's drivers.

I'm not sure why Suse changed the nature of their product. It seems that after using 9.0 and loving it, they created this version of 9.1 with KDE 3.2 and things work, but, not in the same manner as before. I tried using the TV Tuner software and that use to work on my 9.0 system and now it works much more flakey. I installed 9.1 on my Thinkpad T22 and the a strange noise emits from the computer. Plus, very little packages that you need are available anymore. I think Novell is trying to make it less worthwhile to use the GUI environment native to Suse and go out and buy Ximian Desktop (which the by the way doesn't install on 9.1, OS isn't recognized).

1-0 out of 5 stars Machine will not boot now
Well, after installing this software my machine sits on a black screen. You get what you pay for.

2-0 out of 5 stars personal edition is crippled
I'm a software developer who likes to use a gnome desktop on linux. With the fall of RedHat's desktop linux, and the need for a 2.6 kernel for SATA support, I decided to buy SuSE personal 9.1. I figured it would be a basic version, but I thought I could download additional packages with SuSE's great tool Yast.

Unfortunately, this Personal edition does not include gnome, and you cannot download it using Yast because SuSE has not posted the 9.1 files on their FTP server yet.

What really made this product useless to me was the fact that, out of the box, the make or gcc programs were not installed! If they were installed I could not find them in the path or on the hard drive!

Without a C complier any unix-based system is useless in my opinion.

If you just want something for writing Word docs and surfing the web using the KDE desktop (which is excellent), this is fine. If you plan on doing anything remotely sophisticated, FORGET IT. Get the professional edition (overpriced IMO) or some other distro. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Linux is quickly moving from being an alternative operating system to anindustry powerhouse, but few Windows users who want to experiment with the OS are willing to put up with the installation hassles and incompatibilityproblems it currently presents. Linux for Windows is an attempt to let thecurious have their cake and eat it, too, by providing a way for MandrakeSoft'sLinux-Mandrake 7.2 and Windows to peacefully coexist on the same hard drivewithout requiring Linux to reside on a separate partition.

It's a good thing this software comes with a thick instruction manual, becausenone of the installation options are straightforward. The first involves settingthe operating system up in its own hard drive partition, just like any otherLinux installation, but, since this product is advertised as a Linux releasedesigned to get along with Windows, we installed it in our existing Windowspartition. There are some drawbacks to doing this, in that Linux runs much moreslowly than it would if installed in a dedicated partition, and if Windows isuninstalled, Linux is lost as well. You'll definitely want a fast computer withplenty of memory to get the most out of the operating system, as the 400 MHzPentium II test system with 64 MB of RAM we tried it on was barely adequate.

The Linux for Windows CD is bootable, and that's the easiest way to install thesoftware if you know how to change the PC's boot order. Otherwise, when the CDis loaded in Windows, users are presented with the option to create a bootdiskette. Either way, the boot CD or diskette is used to launch DrakX for theactual installation. DrakX is a graphical wizard that guided us step-by-stepthrough the installation procedure, and the manual has information on nearlyevery option. It is possible to delete everything on your hard drive if thewrong option is selected, so pay close attention during every step.

Once installed, we had no trouble running Linux, aside from its operatingextremely slowly during our first session. Subsequent sessions ran much moresmoothly and booted faster, so give it a few tries if you experience similarproblems. Our only real gripe is that the boot menu that let us choose whetherwe wanted to boot Linux or Windows defaulted to Linux, and there was no way tochange things so that Windows was the default operating system. If you can dealwith that and the relatively high system requirements, Linux for Windows is anexcellent way for the timorous to experience and experiment with Linux withoutlosing Windows functionality. However, power users will want to opt for a Linuxdistribution that sits on its own partition. --T. Byrl Baker ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars I DIDN'T GET WHAT I DIDN'T PAY FOR!
Very easy to install,assuming you have a bootable CDROM system. If not,your problems are just beginning. Mine installed in 10-15 minutes. However, the system would not boot up. I spent many hours online searching for help and downloading over 40 pages of info. To date, my linux OS still doesn't run! I suggest that if you are serious about using linux as an OS, ask around to see if anyone near you has any experience with it. Then, see if their version of linux works on your machine before purchasing it. There are many different distributors and versions of linux and most new users have problems! TEST THE WATERS BEFORE DIVING IN!

1-0 out of 5 stars Computer Geek
From a extreme computer user I would not recommend this product for anyone that wants to get into Linux. Linux can be a little difficult when you have been a long time windows user. To get the most out of linux you have use linux the way it was meant to be used. There is plently of info on the net, than go download Mandrake Linux for free. It makes it easy to partition your hard drive or install onto a seperate one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Works well for dual booting...
I decided to purchase this software as a lazy way to get Linux functionality on my home laptop. I didn't want to hassle with trying to setup all the disks and everything. I installed this software on a Gateway 9100XL laptop (PII 300, 128 MB RAM). Install went perfect and I now have a dual-booting Windows 98SE/Linux machine.

The install didn't require any real intervention on my part (other than to choose a couple of hardware options).

2-0 out of 5 stars Wasn't as convenient as made out to be.
Not only was there a number of inconsistencies between the installation manual and the actual installation process, making you feel like you might be doing something wrong throughout the entire things, but if you install it on any drive except for your C drive (Or first partition, whichever) the bootloader can't find windows. I suppose if you wanted to use a boot disk for Windows it would be okay, but that's not quite what I had in mind when I bought it. I don't recommend this product at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Linux install
I am a die hard windows user. I have decided that I MUST learn to use Linux. Linux has some features that are very useful to people with home networks.

I do not agree with the person that wrote the LONG story about why he did not like this product and all of his install problems. First of all, IF YOU WILL READ THE INSTRUCTIONS BEFORE YOU INSTALL the install will go very well. I installed and had NO PROBLEMS. However, I did take time to read the book. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars As easy as Windows, and more powerful
Mandrake Linux installs effortlessly. When you need to install new sotfware onto your machine, this task is also effortless. I'm a first time linux user, and I was outright shocked at how easy the whole procedure was. People say, "sure, but Windows is easy, too." But, Windows crashes. Windows doesn't have a webserver right out of the box. Windows doesn't have enormous libraries of FREE software to install. Windows doesn't run fast on older machines. Linux does all these things and more, and the Mandrake team has put together the tools that make it easy enough for the average person to switch over with no hassle.

5-0 out of 5 stars Want to try linux? Then this is for you.
I'm a long time MS user (dos 2.? and up) and i finally decided i couldn't deal with another lackluster OS(XP). So i started researching Linux. Mandrake seemed to be getting great reviews for new users... and they were right.

The install only took me a half an hour and it detected all my hardware without a hitch. The only peice of hardware i own that wasn't linux friendly was a winmodem that came bundled with my Dell Dimension Desktop. But i've already found some online sources to help me with that problem (at the installers suggestion).

The OS comes fully loaded with an MS compatible office suit and all the tools i need to scan, edit photos, play multimedia, and burn cd's. I beleive the pro-suite boasts a full 7 CD's full of applications for whatever your heart desires. It has everything from internet chat programs (icq/aim/yahoo compatible) to applications for developing your own programs. The firewall is a big plus since i'm switching to a cable modem and i'll constantly be online. It has a bunch of window managers (gnome, kde, sawfish, etc.) and it even installed a graphical LILO that let's me choose which OS i want to run, since i'm still dual booting with Windows ME. But hopefully after i get my feet wet in the linux world, i will eventually be able to stop using that. Plus it's very multiuser friendly and supports true type fonts... the list just goes on and on and on.

I would definately recommend this product to any desktop users considering switching to linux. I've been blown away by this product, especially if your hardware can't keep up with the rigorous demands of XP... my 800mhz pc feels top of the line again when i'm running linux.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mandrake is the best distro for the Masses
Linux Mandrake is simply the easiest and best desktop linux solution that anyone can use. Mandrake provides cutting edge software and excellent support and community options. I highly recommend!

5-0 out of 5 stars Simply amazing!
If you are looking for a good, stable, alternative operating system, then Mandrake is for you! I installed it to dual boot with Windows XP Home Edition on my new Custom Compaq (P4 1.7GHz, 256MB Ram, Dual-20GB Drives, CD-RW) and everything worked without a hitch.

Well, thats not entirely true actually, seeing as I had a PCTEL Winmodem installed on the computer (it came with it) the modem was not properly recognized. However, it was a quick fix when I got a download from Jan's PCTEL Resources (PCTEL and more winmodem drivers available at www.linmodems.org)!

The included StarOffice, AbiWord, and KOffice are excellent Microsoft-Compatible office suties that I use every day. The games included are also very good and provide hours of time-wasting-fun! There is an excellent CD Ripping utility provided, Grip, and XMMS is one of the best media players out there (A clone of the popular WinAMP).

The distro (distribution) comes loaded with window managers and themes, which is wonderful! I personally use KDE 2.2.22, but it comes with Gnome, IceWM, Enlightenment, Black Box, and many more, so if you don't like the default theme, you can very easily switch at login!

I have my Mandrake Linux setup on a 4.65GB (and it only uses 2GB of it!) partition on my secondary drive and I kept Windows XP on its original partition of 17GB (the other partition on the drive is for Compaq OS restore files). I have LILO (Graphical) configured to load Windows XP as the default but with the touch of a button I can boot right into Linux, depending on what kind of a mood I am in!!!

Overall, Mandrake Linux 8.1 is the perfect alternative OS for everyone, in fact, I like it so much that I've been using it much more often than windows! In fact, I'm writing this review on it!

5-0 out of 5 stars Piece of cake!
As a long-time Red Hat user, I have to admit that Mandrake packs a strong punch. The installation process is the best I've seen: so easy to navigate and choose options, very predictable and generally humane. The default configuration is good. Gotta love those goofy penguin icons! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A very solid distribution
Mandrake 7.0 was the first Linux distribution to recognize all of my hardware right out of the box. I've used all of the major distributions -- Mandrake since 6.0. Mandrake has really grown up in 7.0 and is no longer just "RedHat with features". I recommend this to anyone from a user new to Linux to an experience Linux user.

5-0 out of 5 stars Give it a try!
I found the Linux Mandrake to be a wonderful operating system even for the beginner. The installation was easier than Windows 98 and took half the time to install. The Mandrake comes loaded with hundreds of applications including Sun's Star Office which to me now is a must have. (I could write a whole other review about Star Office.) For the Linux newbee I would suggest to know what componets you have in your computer and cross reference them with the Mandrake web site to see if they are supported. Also read the documentation before you install and if you can afford it, give Linux its own hard drive. However if you don't have the luxuary of having a second hard drive, Linux Mandrake can prove to be a good neighbor with Windows. I would recommend this OS to anyone who is willing to learn and wants to try something new. I have tried other flavors of Linux and so far the Mandrake has proved to be my favorite.

3-0 out of 5 stars Beautiful OS but needs work
Linux-Mandrake 7.0 is arcaic now, (Red Hat Linux 7.3 and Linux-Mandrake 8.2 are much better) I couldn't get on the internet with this version. Upside: 7.0 is fast on arcaic computers.

1-0 out of 5 stars Forget the techincal support
If you're buying this box for the support or buying support from Mandrake, then forget it. I couldn't even get the installation disk to boot (something to do with Mandrake having problems with a DVD ROM, despite the fact that every other Linux distribution disk I tried worked), and a request for support only led to a rather dense suggestion and then a referral of my problem to "level 3 support". The latter never responded, not once, not to say "your problem is progressing", not even a "your problem is too hard". Of course "level 3 support" is /dev/null.

1-0 out of 5 stars Terrible, Just Terrible.
I bought Linux with high exceptations, however when I got home and tried to install it took several hours and when I got to the X - Windows config screen in the DRAKX installer my system froze and would have to reinstall Lynux all over again. On the third time I got the config to work, but found myself at the UNIX command line. Having absolutly no experience with UNIX I was confused. After trying a few things about the only thing I could do was to log on and access a help file. Big Deal.

(ignore my earlier review.)
I found I had made a slight mis-configeration in the setup program, which is why I didn't work. Now of course Linux is my operating system and it is working quite nicely, The problem above was all human error and failure to read the instructions. After reading the manual I discovered what I did wrong and corrected it. ... Read more

Amazon.com Review

Linux for Windows is based on one of those ideas that's either brilliant or moronic, depending on your point of view. Aiming to simplify the installation and use of the increasingly popular open-source operating system, Macmillan devised a version of Linux-Mandrake that operates as a Windows shell.

This concept makes installation much less dangerous: instead of repartitioning your hard drive, you create a giant (500 to 1500 MB) image file as a kind of fake partition, then run Linux as if it were a Windows program. In theory, this should make installation easier; unfortunately, the user has to learn just as much to get this version of Linux going as any other, and support is practically nonexistent in comparison with others like Red Hat. What do you do when installation stops dead in a fit of kernel panic? Good luck figuring it out, either from the skimpy docs or the Web.

This product may fill a niche for advanced users who either don't want to partition or need to train Windows users on Linux, but the rest of us should either stick with Windows or get one of the better-supported versions of Linux. --Rob Lightner ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Linux for Windows - Don't Bother
Don't even think about buying this software! I had previously purchased Linux Mandrake 7.0 and was going to repartition my hard drive to use both Linux and Windows. Big mistake!

Not only did the installation fail initially and the documentation was scant to say the least, after I did finally manage to get it installed (somewhat as my winmodem and HP deskjet printer USB both were not supported), then the Boot Magic program could not find root and so I had to use LILO instead to access both OS. LILO is fine but for novices to Linux (me to a degree) it's not graphical like Boot Magic.

Anyway, I decided this wasn't worth it so I decided to uninstall it and totally screwed everything up. I had to go to a friend's house and use his PC to download AEFdisk to get rid of the Linux partition and restore my PC. Well, I managed to get rid of not only Linux but Windows as well, so needless to say, I had to reinstall everything again.

I then decided to try Linux for Window and couldn't get past install but the install.bat file only supports cd-rom drives D thru H. I turned to email support (which advertises 24 hour turnaround) and received a response 4 1/2 days later. I had already figured out by then how to edit the install.bat file and so tried again but this time got a kernel panic error because linux couldn't mount root.

I've given up with this. I'll just build a new box and install linux only on it.

Unless you're a Unix geek, in which case you won't be using Winblows anyway, don't even bother with this crappy software.

Bad software and worse support!

Save your money!

1-0 out of 5 stars Lunix-less
I just loved the Linux For Windows packaging! Three easy steps! Well it is not 3 easy steps. Had a problem right from the get go, as the install.bat is coded for CD-ROM drives no higher than H. My drive is M, but the error message I recieved gave no indication of such. And furnished email tech support was no more helpful. Support could have suggested Windows person (me) change drive letter. Thought of that, but for some novice user? There is not enough documentation in the 2 supplied manuals, espically when it comes to figuring out the video card install. After 2 attempted installs, have Linux 4 Windows on my secondary hard drive, somewhat. Still have a video card problem. Think this Linux 4 Windows is an inductory package for users somewhat curious what Linux is all about. Well fine, if you are able to load Linux it would me nice to have something in the way of at least a few sheets of paper. Showing you how to work the darn software. I still want to experience Lunix, so will have to plan on spending more for a ' seperate ' PC box. After a incomplete install, had to retore Windows, and after many hours, happened to notice my hard drive were no longer DOS. What a mess!

I have two versions of this program, and boy did it mess up my computer. After the install began, and was finished, there was no rebooting my computer. I had to format my drive and reinstall all of my applications and it just made me hate linux even more. If I do build a linux computer, I'll do it as the only OS on the drive and I'll only use my left over parts from my upgrades of previous systems. In simpleer words if you want to try linux use a spare computer, NOT your main computer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for FreeBSD 3 Owners
The wait for the new version of FreeBSD is over, this upgrade is great. As always is stable and the improvements SMP were something we really apriciate. The compability with Linux is much better but keeping with the tradition Berkeley Unix. ... Read more
