openSUSE 11.3 GNOME Review

Filed under
SUSE

Unlike Ubuntu & Fedora, OpenSuse is released every 8 months. This means that they are always usually trailing Ubuntu, Fedora etc with the new Gnome, KDE. I personally prefer Gnome and even though KDE is the default option at install, the Gnome version does not seem like a half-baked distribution like Kubuntu. So without further ado, we’ll dive in.

DESKTOP

If you are looking for the best looking Linux Distribution, OpenSuse wins hands down. distribution’s such as Ubuntu and Fedora only go as far as customizing their Bootscreen, Wallpaper and maybe the theme but OpenSuse customizes everything. The moment you turn your machine on, you get a very nice looking boot loader then an awesome looking boot screen. The login theme looks awesome and the default desktop theme looks great as well. But it doesn’t stop there.

Eclipse Luna for Fedora 20

If you are a Fedora Eclipse user, then you're probably saddened since the release of Eclipse Luna (4.4) because you are still using Eclipse Kepler (4.3) on Fedora 20. Well, be saddened no longer because Eclipse Luna is now available for Fedora 20 as a software collection! A software collection is simply a set of RPMs whose contents are isolated from the rest of your system such that they do not modify, overwrite or otherwise conflict with anything in the main Fedora repositories. This allows you install multiple versions of a software stack side-by-side, without them interfering with one another. More can be read about this mechanism on the software collections website. The Eclipse Luna software collection lives in a separate yum repository, which must be configured by clicking on this link to install the release package. Read more
