OpenSuse 11.0 Ups Challenge
The OpenSuse development team will today release version 11.0 of its open source operating system, an OS that could well be seen as the biggest threat to Ubuntu Linux domination. Faster installations, better package management and top-notch multimedia support are just some of the things that make OpenSuse a significant release.
Among the major changes in this release is a much-improved Yast2 application manager that reports suggest make package management significantly faster.
Installation times have also been significantly improved with this release and the development team says that a full installation should be as much as 60% faster than with previous releases. On some platforms that could mean a full install will take just over 20 minutes.
