I Started using Linux in April since then,I have used Ubuntu,Xubuntu and Now linkux Mint which,I am Happy with as a Newbie and that it's from my Country. But after learning that Opensuse is German it does not Suprise me that they ask for a password on a live CD as I lived there and know them.

Anyway I hope to learn a little more from your blog about Linux.
