    Re: Playing with OpenSuse 12.3

    Well I can only tell of my own experience. I would say if you're happy as you are then there's no point switching. It can take time for you to get things set up as you like them, and can be often just be running to stand still.

    However, it was a pressing matter for us to replace Ubuntu 12.04 on this laptop with another distro (lots of hangs and freezes sadly), and I'm happy to report that openSUSE 12.3 fits the bill so far. Got it all installed and set up, and so far so good. Got all the software installed that we need, and this is indeed a fast setup on the metal. Lovely quick boot and shutdown too. Very polished. The devs loved this one clearly, and I would recommend it to anyone.

    Unless you're happy with what you got already.

    Someone must be interested. I downloaded via torrent and the uploads haven't stopped for several hours.

    And no need for learning new package management? As standard synaptic & Ubuntu back-end.

    So Is it Worth the effort for me to download and give it a whirl? Something given over my present KDE setup?

    There's a LiveDVD/USB option similar to Ubuntu's: http://software.opensuse.org/123/en

I picked the package by polyconvex from the openSUSE Build Service, my only reasoning being the other package on OBS is listed as HTC. I'm sure there's nothing between them, but hey.

    OK
    Just double checked the function of this on a machine which has followed the blog (not adding the file you suggest)
    And it's working fine for me
    Umm...

    Re: Playing with OpenSuse 12.3

    Just out of interest, why does OpenSUSE not have Eclipse and/or NetBeans in the repos? It must be the only mainstream Linux distribution for which this is the case. To have neither is quite remarkable. Is it not much used by programmers or something?

    But isn't that like Arch's AUR? i.e. it's packaged by a member of the community or am I mistaken?
