SUSE versus Red Hat for ease of administration

Novell Cool Solutions: Question & Answer

Posted: 11 Feb 2004

Q:
I've heard lots of people say that it's easier to administer SUSE than Red Hat. Can you point me to some information about that? Ease of administration is a top priority for us.



A:
Well, it's always a matter of opinion. We think YaST is a great help, especially for new users of SUSE. But it's important to make clear that you always have the possibility of editing the config files manually. As for how SUSE compares to Red Hat, check out this article for some perspective. http://www.newsforge.com/business/04/01/28/219249.shtml
