Have you tried OpenSUSE yet?

Written at: Draper, UT

OpenSUSE – project site at – is sponsored by Novell and “promotes the use of Linux everywhere”.

I guess for mere mortals that means on your laptop, home servers, development boxes – anywhere that matters! I know a few people who have given it to family and friends to cut down on the support and virus workload.
There are some interesting innovations coming out of the OpenSUSE community. Take a look at the OpenSUSE build service – demoed at BrainShare just a few weeks ago. Also look at the cutting edge in desktop and laptop usability – anyone who says Linux is a long way from ready for the desktop should seriously look at the massive leaps made in SUSE Linux 10.1 – currently in Beta 9.

And finally to the information that prompted me to write this post: OpenSUSE won the Best of Show award at LinuxWorld Expo last week in Boston – congratulations!

    Suse 10….

    Having just purchased & installed SUSE 10 Retail ( from COMPUSA ) and installed it with only one single error on an IBM A21M Laptop w/384 megs of Ram, and a NetGear WG11T wireless ethernet card I can highly recommend this. The error was in the Video driver. I switched to VESA and all problems vanished. Linux IS ready for prime time, its there, its solid. I did the default install and everything is just fine. Go fearlessly into Linux land and do your business on it, it simply rocks.

    I have just spent a day setting up 10.1. Set-up fails to load kernel module for wifi by default. Trying to change S/W selection grinds the whole thing so that the initial online updates never happen. After trying to apply online updates retrospectively the whole of YOU & Zen is completly banjaxed. I fear I’m going to have to tear the whole thing up and find something that works – I don’t know what that might be; FC5 panics on my hardware and I wasn’t over impressed with earlier versions of Ubuntu.
