Long-Term Review: openSUSE 12.2 KDE

Filed under
SUSE

I did this long-term review on my normal UROP desktop computer with the 64-bit edition of the OS.

Day 0
I tried the live session again using a live USB made with MultiSystem. It worked fine as usual.

Day 1

The installation took about 5 minutes in all. After the zeroth reboot came some final installation configuration, followed by the desktop, which I quickly customized as usual.
