Congrats on the forthcoming new arrival. Pity they don't get packaged as box
sets with all the hardware that you would need for the first couple of years

I have done some investiagtion into why SUSE don't release the ISOs as soon as
the new distro hits the shelf. It appears that because of licencing problems
with the commericial software they package, they cannot release the iso as per
the CD onto their FTP site, therefore they have to do a seperayr ISO for FTP and
this takes time.
