openSUSE 12.2 Mantis review - Average

Filed under
SUSE

A year ago, I promised not to test Gnome 3 ever again, but with the recently released openSUSE 12.2, I was forced to break that promise. Because, according to SUSE wikis, you cannot install Cinnamon without the Gnome 3 framework. Hence, my oathbreaking and tribulation.

Anyhow, openSUSE 12.1 did not really impress me last winter. It seemed to have been released prematurely, important stuff like codecs and graphics drivers were missing from the repository, and overall packaging was not exciting. This was a far cry from pretty much every previous SUSE release. Well, so it's a fluke then? Is it?

Rest here
