For portability and mobility, SUSE Linux Pro 9.2 is getting out the big guns. OSNews.com praises the improvements in SUSE Linux 9.2 when compared to just one version back, 9.1.

Jimmy Oliver says SUSE Linux Professional 9.2 "has undergone massive improvements for users of mobile hardware. With the exit of Redhat from the consumer Linux space, SUSE is poised to corner the market."

He also says that SUSE Linux "does have tremendous support for software suspend. With suspend to disk, you can be up and running in a fraction of the normal boot time. This is advantageous for many reasons. If you can suspend your system to disk, you can save precious battery life. Whenever a break in the work flow is needed to stretch your legs or grab a snack, you can suspend your laptop without depleting your battery. Since suspend to disk writes the entire contents of your system's memory out to your swap partition, you computer is really off. No power is expended in this sleep state, and you can return to your exact work environment upon resumption from suspend."
