SuSE "Partner" Program

we've sold a few suse and redhat solutions with ibm data management software
recently (60% margin from ibm on new licences - thanks very much ibm!). we
thought about becoming suse partners, in solidarity with our fellow
europeans. 1600 euros (or us dollars) to join the partner program seems a
bit steep though :-((

even ibm don't fleece you for that much (until you discover you can't do
anything without the us$2000 "value" pack :-)))

what do others think?

What's the advantage of beeing a 'SUSE Partner'?
I'm to lazy right now to invenstigate this myself, sorry.

Does becoming a partner allow you to see 'OEM' versions of SuSE Linux? Just
curious because I also was thinking of soliciting the idea of selling Linux
boxes preloaded with SuSE Linux to a friend who owns a computer store. As long
as SuSE has support for the software, he will support the hardware. But if we
can get SuSE to give us a break on the cost, then that'd help bring the price
down quite a bit.

Just curious if this is what you guys plan on doing as well.

Later,

Alex.

It's free anyway.
You just pay for the support options.

Check out this link:

If the URL is mangled beyond recognition, try this:

1. http://www.walmart.com
2. Search Electronics for Microtel
3. Look at the right side of the page, "May we also suggest..."

They are sold out on this item.
