Grudge Match: Ubuntu 12.10 vs openSUSE 12.2

Filed under
SUSE
Ubuntu

Relying on one desktop distribution without exploring the alternatives every once in a while can leave the casual Linux enthusiast feeling out of touch.

In the spirit of this realization, this article compares the new openSUSE 12.2 release to Ubuntu 12.10. Realize that at the time of this article, the 12.10 release of Ubuntu hasn't been released yet and is still in beta. Despite the beta status, I was still able to successfully run through the existing features and functionality in the beta release.

During my comparison of the two distributions, I was careful to take into account the different audiences each distribution is targeting.
