Re:Libranet is great but....

It might sound like a lot, but if you are: an existing customer; a senior; a student; a disabled person you pay $50.
Besides you get a tremendous value for money and service. We have been offered a very easy kernel upgrade and a fantastic dist-upgrade. Now I have a bleeding edge system. If I did that on my own from the Debian archives I'd almost certainly fail. In fact they have created a script which has improved apt!
I also like Suse, but I don't agree that it has more software. Apt4rpm (unofficial) tells me that there are about 3800 packages available.
If I remember correctly Libranet's synaptic was telling me that I had 18000 packages available!
And with Suse you don't get a free upgrade, that is for sure!
