 SuSE Linux 9.1 Professional

"One of the great improvements is the addition of AMD64 support. 9.0 had it in a separate, more expensive distribution that was 64-bit capable but I never had the chance to test it out beyond an old beta copy that didn't work right. Having both x86 and AMD64 support in the same retail box is an excellent increase in value -- you're getting a lot more for your money. That sentiment carries throughout the distribution: you're getting more in 9.1 than you ever did before. More software, more functionality, more hardware compatibility... and of course, as a result it costs more as well. Even at $90 it's still half the price of Windows XP Home edition and you're getting enough software to do basically whatever you want to do."
