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

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.

Phoronix offers some criticism of KDE software, and this is how KDE deals with it

About a month ago, Eric Griffith posted an article on Phoronix where he compared Fedora’s KDE spin to the main Fedora Workstation which uses GNOME. In that article, Eric described a number of issues that he became fully aware of when comparing his favorite desktop environment, Plasma (and the KDE applications he regularly uses) with GNOME’s counterparts. I read that article, shared it with other KDE designers and developers, and we came to the conclusion that yes, at least some of the issues he describes there are perfectly valid and clearly documented. And since KDE does listen to user feedback if it makes sense, we decided we should do something about it. Read more
