Comparing SUSE to Other Linux Versions

Using openSUSE Linux might be the best way to learn Linux if you have an eye toward becoming a Linux professional. With its focus on community development, you can be assured that you are getting some of the latest open source software available. The skills you learn will scale up nicely to the largest enterprise computing environments.

Besides Novell, Red Hat, Inc. is the other major corporation that is marketing Linux distributions in the enterprise market. The Red Hat operating systems follow the same basic dual-distribution model, with Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as the basis of its commercial products and Fedora as its free, community-supported Linux system.

Debian is considered to be a high-quality Linux distribution with a strong commitment to the ideals of open source software. Many derivative Linux distributions, such as the popular Ubuntu Linux and the KNOPPIX live CD, are based on Debian. And although Debian is good for use in small business, the project doesn’t have the same enterprise infrastructure (training, support, documentation, and so on) that is built around SUSE Enterprise Linux.
