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.
