openSUSE 12.1 review – new heights of high tech

Filed under
SUSE

OpenSUSE 12.1, you say? Did we miss 12.0 then? No, this is the first release in the distribution’s slightly altered release numbering: from now on openSUSE will not have a .0 release but only .1, .2 and .3 releases. Because the distribution is following an eight-month release cycle, from now on the November release will always be the .1 release, the July release the .2 and the March release the .3.

The change in numbering came after a vote about adopting Fedora-style or Ubuntu-style release numbering or staying with the old scheme. Note that openSUSE does not have a major and minor numbering, so openSUSE 12.1 is not a major version bump.

Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
