Suse linux 10.1



The distro for which i was waiting from past n number of days is finally out . Suse Linux 10.1 undoubtly the most advanced and feature rich distro ever created. from the time i installed it i love it . Well the distro is great it takes around 40 mins to install on my lapy with Centrino 1.6, 2GB RAM and 40 gb HDD. The installation is simple but if u go for mannual partiton u have to give size in cylinders not in gb or mb which is not good for newcommers rest everything works fine. After installation u get anew blue wallpaper in place of any lizard (Suse trademark) The desktop is neat and clean and with professional looks. Its not as fast as ubuntu but not as slow as fedora. It detects all my hardware perfectly and there were no hasels now come the shady part i was dying to see XGL in action in suse . I had spend two nights to install it on fedora. by default the xgl was not present and i was shocked as everyone said it is a part of suse but after doing some googling i came to know i need to install it from cd manually as it was not part of customized installation as u have to install three packages xgl, xgl hardware pack and compiz which actually has all the tricks u can do with it . I installed it from my dvd and i was able to enable it from control centre and within minutes my desktop was 3d. Then i thought why fedora is a mess . Well in the end everything worked perfect it has all the plugins for mp3, wma etc (fedora grow up) and accordind to me suse 10.1 is undoubtly the best linux distro ever. just give it a try and u will know why. but wait just now i have seen ubuntu is also out and now i have to check it so suse have to leave my desktop as for now . See ya guys
