They never have, which always surprised me a bit. Even during the days
when YaST/YaST2 was under somewhat restrictive licensing, it wouldn't
have taken a lot of effort to bundle the redistributable parts of SUSE
Professional with substitute software, e.g., anaconda, but nobody
bothered. I think the target audience have been mostly perfectly happy
with the shrink-wrapped offering.
> BTW, what do Suse do vis-a-vis mp3/dvd support in their pro edition?
Good question. I'll make a point of finding out.
> p.s. congratulations, you've made it to the end despite that first paragraph
Heh. I've been expecting to see competitions to coin the least probable
and/or least melodic sounding prospects for further distribution
