Test SUSE LINUX 9.0 Without Installing It

Test SUSE LINUX 9.0 Without Installing It

The week's most useful address is arguably ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/suse/i386/live-eval-9.0 - this is how you can download it to a CD and start SUSE LINUX from there without changing the partioning of your hard disk before using it.

Novell's hope is that allowing people to see the new functionalities and the look-and-feel of SUSE LINUX before installing it will help drive adoption.

At the address above you can find the ISO of the so-called SUSE "Live Filesystem. Once written on a CD, says a note on the SUSE site, "It allows you to start SUSE LINUX from the CD, nevertheless with certain speed limitations."

Hopefully a LinuxWorld reader will post a review over the weekend.
