I did a fair amount of research late last when we had to move our
Linux work from Caldera's distribution, and decided on SuSE.
We've installed 30 or more SuSE 8.[12] systems since the first of
the year, and I've been very happy with it (we use the OpenPKG
package management system so our modifications are portable and
independent of the vendor's whether it's Linux or FreeBSD).
