A tiny twist . . .

17 12 2008

Yep, today’s post has a twist…why? Because I’m not going to talk about Ubuntu on this one. Instead I’m gonna talk about openSUSE.
What’s so special about it? Well for one it’s got nice eye candy by default thanks to the KDE environment (openSUSE also comes with GNOME though). Also it’s hardware compatibility is higher than Ubuntu’s with some computers (for example my Toshiba Satellite). Not to mention that it has a cool lizard/chameleon as a mascot! (lol!)

Tomorrow openSUSE 11.1 will come alive, and let me tell you…IT’LL ROCK ! ! !

As with all other Linux distributions there are some quirks and downsides to openSUSE but luckily most of that is fixed in the new version. One of the most annoying annoyances was with wireless drivers. It was a pain to just connect to the internet with a wi-fi card. But if things turn out as the openSUSE wiki says, all of that will be a thing of the past.

So, for those of you wondering what else openSUSE has to offer go visit their site .

Tomorrow will be a great day for me! I’ll have my new openSUSE liveCD to test and I also have Debian and Gentoo LiveCDs laying around to play around with all of them!

If you want to have fun too, go download openSUSE! You won’t be disappointed…A fair warning though…Read the installation instructions carefully! I wasn’t careful the first time I installed it and managed to destroy all my data in the process…overconfidence is veeery bad in Linux.

So, have FUN!
