openSUSE 12.1 32-bit review - Even worse

Filed under
SUSE

A few days ago, I posted my rather negative review of openSUSE 12.1 64-bit, regrettably installed on my high-end desktop. Not only was the experience full of bugs and crashes and inconsistencies, I was unable to use my Nvidia card problem, had an incomplete multimedia experience and could not use the web camera. Hardly a promising start.

Today, I will give openSUSE a second change and retest on my T60p laptop, a dual-core 32-bit machine with an ATI card that was forged on Mount Doom with hammer and anvil, so olden it is. What more, I will test the much praised BTRFS and the rollback capabilities, allowing you to revert important system files and drivers back to their original state. And there should be a nice, friendly frontend.

So let's do that.
