Hi all
I just wanted to share that I've been running openSUSE 10.2
for a week now and I must say that its quite fantastic!

Novell's OpenOffice is so much better than original
OpenOffice....it handles .doc files better than any other
non-MS office suite that I've seen....you'll almost feel you
are using MS Word to view .doc files! Its DigiKam autodetects
my digital camera and easily imports images
from the camera. Flash, Java, Adobe reader, unRAR,
Opera etc. - all preinstalled and workin out-of-the-box.

And did u see the new redesigned KDE menu in openSUSE 10.2?
Its pretty cool and awesome. The system is pretty snappy, even with
Beagle runnin all the time in the background. I've found Beagle so
very useful - its like Google Desktop Search in Windows. I'm playin
Quake2 and Unreal Tournament fullscreen nicely under Wine.
Almost all the packages I need are on the DVD, which is such a boon
given the slow internet connection we have.

openSUSE is truly the BEST OS:) ALL other distros fall short of openSUSE 10.2.

You can see screenshots of my beautiful openSUSE desktop here:

Aahhh..now my days of distro-hopping are over. openSUSE 10.2 is
gonna stay on my PC for many months and will be replaced only
by the next version of openSUSE. Now its just openSUSE for me! :)

Take care

I'm new to Linux world but I totally agree with what Yasser has to say regarding Open Suse 10.2

Even for someone like me (who finds Linux world very complex & tedious) I found Open Suse 10.2 to be very user friendly...I say this after having tried out Mandriva, Ubuntu & Fedora.

I have tried some 7-8 distros till date now, and opensuse 10.2 really rocks. If they just get rid of some bugs that are there, then it really is going to change the days for linux.

Nice Review
Can you send me those icons My comp, etc?
Pls
Those icons are default ones just after installation. You'll always find those same icons if u install openSUSE. I don't know where one can get those official openSUSE icons or how I can send u the icons.

To pathik: But I find opensuse 10.2's perfomance pretty good, even though I have just 256MB RAM, Intel Celeron CPU and Beagle runnin all the time!

To Aditya: I loved ur avatar! LOL!

Edgy is good but its graphical boot doesnt support my monitor and I get a blank screen and verrry slow booting...plus Kubuntu's KDE is AWFUL...they're makin it like Gnome! Ubuntu ain't so complete....as opensuse is.

Check in /usr/share/icons/<theme name>

If optimised well enough, it's possible to run KDE/GNOME on slightly slower hardware. See Debian or Slackware for that, their KDE/GNOME are even faster cos they are optimised for lower resource usage.

Is opensuse using binary drivers here somewhere?

You could get an icon set from kde-looks.org

By the way I think the default OpenSUSE icons aren't the same as Windows XP icons, they are the ones shown in the screenshots of coolblue.
