blogbeebe.blogspot: I hadn't received my openSUSE 11.1 boxed set yet, in spite of pre-ordering it December 9th, and it looks like it won't ship until January 5th. No matter. The downloadable ISOs are available and I just grabbed the official release versions and re-installed.

Also: 5 Days on openSUSE 11.1 was an early X-Mas present

From this point on, the only changes will be bug fixes. Read more
