NEw Rival OS

Hey guys,

All the hype is up with the new Ubuntu 9 and the soon to be released fedora core 11.

Fedora is really pumping these OSs really fast.

So whats the verdict. Will opensuse 11.2 which is many months away be able to competerotfl!

What do you guys think?

of course it will. Even if suse is not that vocal, it’s constantly improving and adding new things and is feature on-par with the other distros

Did I miss something? Everybody releases every six months to a year or
more. Fedora came out late last week, then OpenSUSE. Now Fedora will
come again… not sure where the problem is there. Ubuntu releases every
six months too I think. At one point in time or another everybody is
bound to have a newer release out than everybody else, even if it’s only
for a few seconds/minutes/days/weeks/months.

I was going to write something lengthy. But this does NOT deserve a so
a well written response (no offense).

Neither Fedora nor Ubuntu are BETTER no matter what version we’re
talking about… Nuff said…

In my opinion, I too like suse. Its one of the most rounded LINUX distributions out there in the world.

I wonder why opensuse does not advertise as much as ubuntu. With YAST2, I find that it is really easy doing stuff. Plus for those who still like doing the hard way or just like to know the command line, there is that option too like any good LINUX distro there is. IMHO i think that opensuse is a good way to if you want to move away from Windows into the free world of LINUXlol!

No offense but why wouldn’t it be? Since 10.3 openSUSE gets tons of improvements every release. It’s one of the best distros out there. The only serious competitor(from the ones you mentioned) is Ubuntu.

I have used Suse for about 7 years and think about switching to Kubuntu because of newness.

Here’s why:
The many bugs of KDE 4.1.3 make it a moderate pain for a productive system, but I like KDE4 too much to switch back to 3.5.

I have a free partition, a separate home-partition, and the Kubuntu download is almost complete. So I will try and see whether a newer KDE4 truly works better.

I would really like to stick to Suse, and I did try to upgrade KDE4 via the numerous confusing upgrade repositories available. There appear to be several conflicting threads about updating KDE4, I picked one, but that broke many things, maybe because of other enabled KDE-Community repositories, so I rolled back.

The bottom line is that for KDE-users, SuSE’s timing is really unfortunate at the moment. :frowning:

PS: I think it would be useful if there would be some kind of authoritative info about a stable and new KDE4 with the current SuSE.

hmm - i’m running kde4.3 with no distro based issues having upgraded
from 4.1 and earlier 4.2 maybe you should have considered uninstalling
just kde4.1.3 and then installing 4.3beta. Your problems could have been
cause by the renaming/replacement of modules used as the kde4 series was
being developed.

Suse 11.1 x64, Kde 4.2.1, Opera 10.x weekly
