    SUSE 10.1 released

    After a two months delay and a bunch of alpha-releases, the final is here.
    For Gnome lovers it also includes a modified, but outdated 2.12 version of Gnome (Screenshot). The default desktop environment is KDE though.

    If anyone's interested: Five CDs with only free software and one AddOn-CD with proprietary stuff. Get it via FTP or Bittorrent: http://download.opensuse.org/index.html

    I can't decide whether I should install kde or gnome... I'm gonna have the same issue with slackware (want gnome, default kde) when 11 comes out.

    I wanted to give it a go since it has XGL support out of the box but Gnome 2.12 is not acceptable. I'll wait for dapper.

    Downloading it right now Ubuntu was my first dist I tried (luckily cus otherwise I would probably have gone back to windows) Tried a couple so far (even some BSD versions) but noone has been working as good as ubuntu. Faster maybe but not as good. (ubuntu is the only one that worked with my wireless out of the box)

    Re: SUSE 10.1 released

    notice the latest kernel though (dapper is is still using 2.6.15-x). I have a question: what is the biggest difference between kde 3.5.1 and 3.5.2? SUSE is using the oldish desktops on a newest kernel. Will there be an issue with the performace that kde 3.5.2 offers currently on the 2.6.15-x kernel?

    I am also torrenting right now, but the download are slow; uploads has overshot my bandwidth quota, so I am reluctant to do this right now. Will wiat till midnight or so.

    Can't wait to compare my Kubuntu dapper with SUSE kde. My issues are with laptop overheating in Kubuntu/MEPIS, i hope the new kernel in suse is more laptop heat friendly (at least with me).

    thanks

    Sad about the version number of Gnome, but it does look very good! Anyone know where I can find the Metacity and GTK+ themes used in SUSE 10.1?

    As far as I know XGL is not enabled by default. You have to follow the Wiki to install it (it' available in the repos)

    anyone know where I can download the torrent for the internet install? I'd rather not waste my time downloading a whole dvd, not to mention the blank dvd!
