According to SuSE's U.S. web site, I count 3 (Alpha, Intel, PowerPC);
only Intel is the latest (7.0) release:


Their German site also mentions an S/390 port, but they don't sell it
yet.  That's 4.

I know they've sold "archive" CDs in the past, but I really don't
think that counts since the CDs don't contain SuSE packages.
