I was absent last week, so there was no digest. Here is an attempt to catch up quickly.
Novell’s Open Audio spoke about the release of OpenSUSE 10.3 and OpenSUSE’s central point of news talked about download strain. A VMware image is available as well.
Various reviews keep coming in, but here are a few reviews from high-profile sites.
openSUSE 10.3 is a mature, stable, free Linux distribution. Pros include excellent documentation and a wide selection of up-to-date software. Its YaST configuration utility offers ease-of-use matched perhaps only by Mandriva’s Control Center. It seems as fast and responsive as any other modern Linux distro, even on my rather underpowered test box (except for the 3D desktop effects, which is to be expected).
OpenSUSE 10.3 was released last week, and I quickly downloaded the new version to update my two openSUSE boxes. Here’s a chronicle of the updates and some problems that surfaced during the process.
While not perfect, this release is the best openSUSE yet. Well done Novell and the SUSE community, I might just keep this on my MacBook!
openSUSE 10.3 is yet another step which brings Novell’s SUSE closer to the “quality” of Vista. Keep up the “good” work!
