SUSE Linux is a thoroughly modern operating system, loaded with tools for working with music, movies, and images. We will discuss all this over the next few chapters. You'll see how your Linux-equipped PC really is ready to become the center of your multimedia world.
As you'll learn in this chapter, support for digital audio is built into SUSE Linux. Playback facilities are offered for MP3 music as well as CDs. It's even possible to record your own audio by plugging a microphone or other source into your sound card. If you have the skills and inclination, you can install additional software to turn your PC into a music-making machine.
