The openSUSE project is a community program sponsored by Novell. Promoting the use of Linux everywhere, this program provides free, easy access to openSUSE, a complete Linux distribution.

The openSUSE Project is proud to announce the release of openSUSE 11.0 — everything you need to get started with Linux on the desktop and on the server. Promoting the use of Linux everywhere, the openSUSE Project provides free, easy access to the world’s most usable Linux distribution, openSUSE.


The 11.0 release of openSUSE includes more than 200 new features specific to openSUSE, a redesigned installer that makes openSUSE even easier to install, faster package management thanks to major updates in the ZYpp stack, and KDE 4, GNOME 2.22, Compiz Fusion, and much more.

GNOME 2.22 : openSUSE’s GNOME is very close to upstream GNOME, because Novell and openSUSE want to do as much work as possible in the upstream release. However, we do modify GNOME’s artwork to provide a unified look and feel for the distro.

KDE 4.0 : openSUSE 11.0 is the first openSUSE release to include a stable release of KDE 4.0. This release includes sweeping changes in the KDE desktop, and represents the next generation of KDE. This release includes a new desktop shell, called Plasma, a new look and feel (called Oxygen), and many interface and usability improvements.


Xfce 4.4 : openSUSE 11.0 features the latest Xfce 4.4.2, with a string of new changes including composite effects.

Compiz Fusion : The openSUSE desktop is not only a green glorious sight to behold, it’s also available in 3-D! Compiz Fusion is now the default in openSUSE 11.0.


Banshee 1.0 : openSUSE 11.0 includes Banshee 1.0. The Banshee media player has been re-written to improve performance and includes many new features, including video playback, better “shuffle” playback, support for iPods, MTP devices, and mass storage player devices, and support for podcasts and better Last.fm integration.

I am willing to install this with XP(I dont use it, its just there) & Ubuntu Hardy.
Will its installer recognise the other 2 or would i have to edit menu.lst file?

I might actually try out OpenSuse. After all there must be some reason why NucleusKore is sticking with it :). the packages seemed to be updated good enough. And I see that KDE 4.1 is also available for OpenSuse as well. So I might want to give ti a whirl soon.

Out of curiosity .
How do new folks adapt towards OpenSuse. Is it quite easy to use?

I don't know about other newbies, but the reason I'm still using Linux when I want to is coz of openSuSE. Well, I've been with it since SuSE 9, and the experience has been a pleasure for me, unlike the experiences I've had with distros like Redhat 9 (at that time), or Fedora (later on). For a newbie, I never had to deal with multimedia stuff a lot with SuSE. I would say Ubuntu could be more newbie-friendly, but maybe I'll always be more biased towards openSuSE (its more pleasing to even look at, in my personal opinion). :)


11 will be installed tonight. :D

beware ,it will be heavy for puny systems :)

Opensuse is similar to windows.like it or not.that is the thing which attracts window$ power @busers to stick with it :D

If for eyecandy+kde ,why not Sidux ?

^^ STFU prakash... you said you will use openSUSE if the package management were better. Believe me, new zypper is way way better than what it was in 10.3. So use it now.

It's good. Period. It's slow if you have anything less than 1 GB RAM.

Well my Home System is not quite old. Its a AMD 4400 with 2 GB of Ram and a 8600 GT display card. Are there like tons of downloads to get this upto date and functional. Is there a 64 bit version also?

I am using it with 512 MB RAM with KDE 4 and its not sluggish at all, as some of you suggest, though i have not enabled Desktop Effects.

Just installed and used it for about 15 mins..Two crashes needing hard reboot already..As expected, Network Manager implementation sucks big time (moreso for pppoe connections)!

1:> Installation was smooth albeit a bit too long and time consuming
2:> Internet connection did not work when I logged into GNOME
3:> Logged in to KDE 3.5, fired up KInternet..CRASH and Hard reboot
4:> Logged in to KDE 4, fired up KInternet..Connected to Internet finally after messing with a few settings..Clicked on the "Add Widgets" on desktop..CRASH and Hard reboot

I am kinda pissed off completely..Maybe its just my hardware or whatever but I have to say this thing is nowhere near to Ubuntu IMHO.Period.
