I would like to add my voice of support for SuSE 8.2+.
SuSE is one of the most advanced Linux distributions around. SuSE installs
easily and without problems on a variety of systems, including
dual-processor Xeon system. Administration and configuration tool YaST2 is
one of the best on the market. New Novell Linux offering is SuSE based, also
the new Sun Java Desktop is a stripped version of SuSE. IBM is installing
SuSE across its full range of servers. SuSE Linux is a solid distribution
and is able to remain on the same path for so many years and still be
SuSE is rpm based.
Vote for it at bugzilla
bug # 899
