Filed under
Software

openSUSE has been a pretty good Gnome distribution for a long time now, but 11.4 really gave me a different feeling: I found only 1 bug I care to solve in my laptop support, and the defaults I had out of the box were all more than good, they were pleasing. It is not just functioning well, it is smooth, it has a quality that is hard to describe but we all know it when we see it. Which is just so damn awesome Smile

Usually I tinker for days to get an environment I am comfortable with (I am a clinical case, I do this on OS-X, Windows and Linux irrespective), but in this case, I had to do very few things to get a very nice setup for my work laptops, both esthetically and functionally.

The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
