I better speak up! :)
I'm using SuSE 9 and am pleased as punch.  It comes with, IMHO, some great 
configuration, control and installation applications.  Out of the box, I 
was able to access my NTFS drives, which was real nice.  I will be picking 
up a pro. version in the future for sure.  Out of all the distro's I tried 
last year (5 different ones from downloadable ISO's), SuSE was the only 
one that let me make a really customized install (still working around my 
w2k partitions).  Others had a bit of a fit with my non-standard install, 
though I know they should have worked...I've grown to love the lizard.
