i did not mean to say anything bad about suse. i have been alive for
several decades and have other experiences that make me question the
title "professional" in things and when describing people. and not all
experiences with the title have been bad either. it really simply seems
to be independent of the word, whether the software or the person is
i stated and i meant it, that i have never used the distribution. this
is the reason i wanted to know how it works. both to build things on
and to get answers from.

i use debian because the gimp people suggested it. working with debian
and working with them have both been challenges.
i can make my computer work and i can make software work, but i cannot
make a place for myself in the world. at this point, it seems that it
would take little boys to grow up or old boys to shut up or other women
to give it up -- i dunno.
does anyone know a good lawyer? forget the distribution and license
wars. I am simply in need of a good lawyer now, myself. it is much
more important than whether gimp-perl can build on suse or not. it is
even more important than if gimp is better than other apps or can do
this or has a useable gui.
this one human being needs a lawyer.
