SuSe takes over my Desktop!

Filed under
SUSE

Since yesterday I’ve been evaluating SuSe, and I’m pretty impressed by the distro. It’s not the first time I’ve used SuSe, I used it before Novell acquired it. It was one of the best one at that time, but not ready for the Desktop. After the Novell acquisition I think SuSe has improved greatly! It’s an awesome distribution now. However the desktop installation did not go as smoothly as that installation on my laptop. I had to manually configure my soundcard, with alsaconf, that’s it.

Now, I don’t believe that noobs should use SuSe/Fedora etc. straight when they dive into Linux, yes these distributions make a life a lot simpler with Linux, but I believe that you dont learn much about GNU/Linux, the platform, while you are using these distros.
