Which distribution offers the better desktop Linux based on ease of acquisition, configuration, general use, and support website?
Redhat.com has an extensive support library covering all features from installation to configuring to troubleshooting. SuSE.com has a much smaller support area, and I was more disappointed by what the site what had to offer,but this may be because of the way SuSE is distributed compared to Red Hat.

Overall, despite my personal preference for Red Hat's Gnome support, I think SuSE 8.1 is slightly better for the inexperienced because of its simple installation, stylish graphics and simplicity of configuration.
