openSUSE 11.3 GNOME Review

Filed under

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.


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.

Curious about Linux? Try Linux Desktop on the Cloud

Linux maintains a very small market share as a desktop operating system.

For Linux to challenge Microsoft's monopoly on the desktop, there needs to be a simple way of learning about this different operating system. And it would be naive to believe a typical Windows user is going to buy a second machine, tinker with partitioning a hard disk to set up a multi-boot system, or just jump ship to Linux without an easy way back.
