OpenSUSE 11.2 the Perfect KDE Distribution

Filed under
SUSE

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

The state of Linux gaming in the SteamOS era

For decades after Linux's early '90s debut, even the hardest of hardcore boosters for the open source operating system had to admit that it couldn't really compete in one important area of software: gaming.
