openSUSE 12.2: My first take

Filed under
SUSE

It's been over a week now since openSUSE 12.2 was released, and I have been installing it on the various netbooks and laptops around me. It has worked just fine on everything I have tried so far, and my intention was to write a glowing summary of how easy it is to install and how well it works. Then, over the weekend I ran into a small hitch. But first, the good news.

The openSUSE 12.2 distribution is available in the usual variety of versions — KDE and Gnome 3 Live images, and a full-blown 4.7GB Installer image. The standard KDE desktop is shown above in a screenshot taken on my HP Pavilion DM1-3105EZ sub-notebook, which has a 1,366x768 display.
