SUSE 9.3 Pro
I have a copy of the Linux magazine – October 2005 Edition – which I purchased at the time because it came with a DVD: a full SUSE Pro 9.3 software disc … but I never installed it. I now want to try Linux, and I am writing to ask if SUSE Pro has been superseded or would it still be worth installing? If it has been superseded, what has replaced it?
Major distros put out a new version once (or often twice) per year. Much has changed since our October 2005 "Web Design" issue – especially with SUSE, which has thoroughly restructured its product lines. Although the disc will probably work on your computer (especially if you owned the computer in 2005), you are better off finding and installing a new version to take advantage of bug fixes, security updates, and many new features. Also, you might run into version compatibility issues with websites or shared documents, not to mention you won't receive new updates and fixes because the version you are using is no longer supported.
