OpenSUSE 11.2 the Perfect KDE Distribution

Filed under

While openSUSE community are preparing to release openSUSE 11.2 in the next month, I decide to discover what's new in openSUSE 11.2. I downloaded the RC1 image and start play with it. In short, it is fast, stable and beautiful. I think the decision to move to 8 months release is wise decision. It gives more time to build and test the software. But the most exciting decision is put KDE is the default desktop environment. OpenSUSE 11.2 is the best KDE distribution (IMHO).

In this post I will review the most 10 important features in the default openSUSE 11.2 desktop:

1- Linux 2.6.31 kernel

Linux 2.6.31 kernel is the latest version of Linux kernel. It was released on 9 September, 2009. It brings tones and tones of new features and bug fixing. You can check this article to see what's new in this version. Most upcoming distributions will ship this version.

The many different file systems that can be used on storage is really only interesting to hardware geeks and is best saved for another discussion. Now that that’s cleared up, we can press on.
