Open Suse 11.1 Review

Filed under
SUSE

Open Suse is one of the few Linux distributions which seems to evolve by leaps and bounds with every new release. Although numbered as an incremental upgrade from version 11.0, Open Suse 11.1 contains enough improvements and new features to be well worth an install, even by users already running the previous release.

Yast

Open Suse’s system administration suite YaST (Yet another Setup Tool) provides all of the standard configuration options and system administration options all in one place (something users of some other popular distributions bemoan, with Debian-based distributions generally being the biggest offenders in this department).

There are also advanced options including detailed user and group permissions setting, optimization tweaks for hardware and more.
