openSUSE 11.1: Advantages over Ubuntu 9.04 & Fedora 10

Filed under
SUSE

The other day I realized that Linux Mint wasn’t receiving the official security updates from Ubuntu. My Ubuntu Studio desktop had update after update while my Linux Mint desktop had nothing. Strange -

so I decided to install Ubuntu. Besides the 9.04 issue and my keeping 8.04 as the LTS edition, I have been experiencing a few other issues.

To sum it up, during the course of the last two days, I have been deciding between Fedora 10 & openSUSE 11.1.

A lot of Linux fanboys hate the idea of how Microsoft somehow “owns” openSUSE after a deal made with openSUSE’s commercial sponsor, Novell. I read the EULA and didn’t spot a single Microsoft reference anywhere.

  • letsencrypt support in propellor
    I'm using the reference letsencrypt client. While I've seen complaints that it has a lot of dependencies and is too complicated, it seemed to only need to pull in a few packages, and use only a few megabytes of disk space, and it has fewer options than ls does. So seems fine. (Although it would be nice to have some alternatives packaged in Debian.)
  • New release: usbguard-0.4
    I’m not dead yet. And the project is still alive too. It’s been a while since the last release, so it’s time to do another. The biggest improvements were made to the rule language by introducing the rule conditions and to the CLI by introducing a new command, usbguard, for interacting with a running USBGuard daemon instance and for generating initial policies.
