    Default OpenSUSE Netbook Edition

    Is there a OpenSUSE version coming out that support Netbooks with an interface like this? Check out the screencast. It looks really nice.

    I would like something like this but don't want Ubuntu

    it is if you are using Gnome. I will have to move my taskbar and change ubuntu.png to a OpenSUSE logo. Everything will be fine then

    I loaded netbook-launcher onto my Eee 701 last night running OpenSuse 11.1 and when I launched it I almost fell over! I thought I was back in Ubuntu EEE!!!
    The netbook-launcher works, though I have to file a bug report for a shutdown problem. Very nice on the 7" screen.
    Cheers.

    Just installed Linux4one on my Acer One.. it's a ubuntu respin.. Not bad but it's not OpenSUSE Think I will remove it again tomorrow and go back to what I know. Altho I will install gnome since the netbook launcher is really good for a netbook and works best with gnome.
