SUSE Linux 10.1 Review

Filed under
SUSE

Novell's SUSE Linux operating system has consistently gained momentum for years. Since I started reviewing it at version 8.1, I've found each new release to have more options, better autoconfiguration, and expanded hardware support, all while maintaining a high level of stability. But after having extensively tested SUSE Linux 10.1 for x86 and AMD64, I must say that the positive trend has faltered, and my expectations were not met with this release. While some things are clearly improved in 10.1, others have taken a step backward.

Saga of the Upgrade to SuSE 10.1: Advil needed!

SUSE

That's the new kid in town, having had a lot of reviews even from its beta releases. Some people may want to get into it because of the hyped Xgl/Compiz, AppArmor, Xen and who knows what else (NX, anyone?). Some others might just consider to install it for a fully-fledged, user friendly, desktop GNU/Linux distro.

In my case, I was having SuSE 10.0 on my desktop PC, and I only considered upgrading from 10.0 to 10.1, with as little as possible disruption of the service.

Filed under
SUSE

My current favorite desktop Linux is OpenSUSE 10.1. I can say all kinds of good things about it, except when it comes to the package manager. Unfortunately, the package manager, which the administration tool YaST uses for adding new programs and updating old ones, currently has serious problems.

Reviews
SUSE

Everyone is aware of my love for SUSE. First Linux distro, etc., etc., etc. SUSE 10.0 has been a solid, hardworking distribution since its release and truthfully, I hated to destroy something that had worked so flawlessly. After some thought, I decided to clean up an old machine...AMD 950 with about 500MB of RAM and see how this new release performed. I wasn't disappointed!
