Thread: Suse Makes Me A Maytag

    Default Suse Makes Me A Maytag

    I've stuck with Suse for several years now. It's the best and it always has been. I've always had hardware that's a bit "different", yet I thought it was worth the extra effort to get high end video and oddball sound cards to work with my favorite distro.

    This time, openSuse 11.0, you've made it too easy on me! I went with the 64-bit distro for my (home build) AMD X2 system. The install was so fast, I didn't have time to finish my coffee (previously I could go out for breakfast). Everything worked great. One click installed my nVidia 8800GT drivers (the one bit of work I had to do was run the nvidia-xconfig script...but you'll see to fixing that..right?). Then, I was all prepared for an evening of hunting for sound codes...right? Nope! Someone had created a website with scads of 1-click multimedia installs!

    I am starting to feel like the Maytag repair man! A complete Suse system on a high end 64 bit PC up and running in an hour!

    LOL! I feel the similiar "pain". Have used opensuse since 10.0 on 2 systems and this one is tops!

    With KDE 3.5.9 installed, I have been pleasantly surprisely to have a 'work-a-day' desktop system that is as stable as a table. (pun intended) for since 3-july-2008

    I have a dual boot suse/vista system (work requires it) and have been working online exclusively in opensuse 11.0 with no issues!

    Sweet!

    Bad subject line though. Maytags now have some of the WORST
    service issues in the industry (just fyi).
