    I wrote a Complete Training for all these distro, and therefore I 
know very well
    what they did.

    Would be 100 times more easy that SuSE adopt a RedHat Linux 
complaint System
    like Caldera, Conectiva adopt in the past. I don't remember 
TurboLinux, but also
    them seems uses a "standard" IBM/HP/Silicon/SCO behaviour.

    SuSE is "another planet" ... on Linux.

    Different "init" level (5 is not included, 3 is equivalent to 2), a 
lot of etc...

    About SysV init dir they have also difference.

    Just to be "rude" with SuSE ... will be better if they forget what 
they did
    in the past and moves to join to "the rest of us" .
