I'm convinced you like whatever distro you're using as I do mine, but
I'm also very sure you haven't done much research into what you are
Now there's no need for us to get into a distro war of words here, as
that is not why the list is here. We are trying to solve problems
folks are having with Gimp not run down a particular distro we don't
use or like. Well I am, but your responses take on a different tone.
You can't assume from a past experience or hearsay that what you say is
true now about SuSE. Those of us that use it know how well it operates
directly. Now let's move on to talking Gimp.
