I did enquire of every red-head at one meeting a few months ago - alas it 
seems you were not in attendance.

I plan attending the November meeting.  If so, I'm likely to be the baldest 
person wearing an Everythinglinux penguin pin.  Might be accompanied by a 
grey-bearded SuSEite of even greater vintage.

We are certainly interested in trying 8.1.  We are used to the 3 CD Desktop 
distro of SuSE 7.2 - however, I doubt that translates to the first 3 CD of 
the Pro distro.
