Does anyone run SUSE pro as a test bed for PHP/MySQL?scripts
Do you run it as a home or small-biz machine?

Is it up to your expectation?

regards

I don't use SUSE myself, but I have a friend (who works for IBM, so is perhaps biased - SUSE is an important IBM parter) who uses SUSE 9.0 and 9.1 successfully on desktops, servers and laptops, and reckons it is absolutely the best Linux distro out there for software and web development (JSP in his case).

I think it depends as much on personal preference than anything else: all the major distos are remarkably similar in their capacity as web servers. As for using it as a desktop/workstation, it is more the window manager which defines the user experience rather than the underlying distro.

Every thing you need for development is included in SuSE 9.1 Pro. Apache, php, mysql, phpMyAdmin and Qunata(script editor), etc. I can't imagine using anything better.
I an using it to make a huge php/mysql site (50,000+ pages).

I have been using Suse linux (pro versions) for year now. Never had any problems with it. I like the distros and find their support to be excelent.

Before posting here I have also heard many good comments.
This is reinforcing my interest in the distro (pro version)
I like the idea of some cross platform capability
Am I correct to assume that for ex: it may open an XL doc?

Open Office can open Excel documents - again this is not due to the underlying distro, as OO is available for many distros and platforms including Windows.

If you want to test whether your Excel files open correctly in OO before switching to Linux, you can download the Windows version from [openoffice.org...] .

Encyclo thanks
actually I never tried it before (XL) although I should have.
I am interested in SUSE for RH is no longer supported
unless running the enterprise version or the "for a yearly fee" desktop version
I already switched to Linux since RH 7 .something...
and do all my dev on RH9.
