View Full Version : Finally saying it...

Ok, guys, I'm finally going to say it. I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place or not, but I'm going to say it anyway. Here goes.

Since Sept 2006, when I was divinely inspired by a beautiful blonde angel at a book store where she whispered, "...look at SUSE...". I was a seething mass of anger toward that hated Microsoft when it caught her attention and she asked,"...are you ok? What is wrong?". I explained my hatred for Microsoft and what they had done to me, that they had awakened a fire breathing dragon and will forever, with evangelistic fervor, declare the subversive, substandard horror of Microsoft and that condemned monkey-boy that runs the tyrannical beast. I was already familiar with Linux and was frantically seeking a source for a SUPERIOR operating system. I knew of Solaris(Unix) and Linux, but now I was on a serious safari hunt to cast out the Microsoft demon.

Behold, a chorus of angels focused a bright high beam of light while singing in grand harmony on a book called,"The Bible of SUSE". Inside the book was an install disk of Suse 9. Well, I took it home and installed it. Then, with glorious awareness, I was awakened to the superiority of SUSE. Immediately, the system that Microsnot shot and killed rose from the dead with a new body and a new spirit. I jumped up from the chair and ran out of the house and, with arms high, shouted," I HAVE DISCOVERED LINUX. BY THE GRACE OF GOD, I HAVE FOUND A BLESSED SUPERIOR DISTRIBUTION!!!!!!! BLESSED BE THE NAME OF SUSE!!!!"

Since then, I have used, studied, and studied some more this most fine operating system. So here goes, I love SUSE. There, I said it. Thank you, guys, for such a wonderful distro of Linux. I can not say enough good words about SUSE, but the first one that comes to mind is...love.

Now that I have caught my breath, I wish the entire SUSE team a great big "Thank You" and keep up the good work.

With sincere gratitude,

happy you are happy, but get a grip.
its just an operating system, not a Holy Grail..

i also became of aware of SuSE in the nines (i think it was 9.1, or
maybe .2) but there is _plenty_ of room to argue which distro is best,
especially for the various needs....like, i would never recommend
openSUSE for the internet facing server of a company/institution...(of
course, i wouldn't recommend Windows for anything more important than a
Windows phone, without a battery.)

ymmv--i think you might need to think more on what is REALLY important.

openSUSE®, the "German Engineered Automobile" of operating systems!
