any more software at this time so would I be better off looking at

My two cents. I've been using SuSE pro 9.0 and 9.1 in production
environments. It's nothing major, but fileservers for small businesses.
Since setting them up, I've been back only to fix non Linux problems,
never a problem with the SuSE box. Then again, file serving is pretty
simple. On the other hand, I've use SuSE as my desktop development
environment for a couple of years as well. That probably hits it a lot
harder than the file serving.
