OpenSuSE 12.3: In-depth and hands-on

Filed under
SUSE

The leading edge of the deluge of new Linux releases has reached us, in the form of openSuSE 12.3.

The news is good - in fact, it's very good.

I said when openSuSE 12.2 was released that I really liked it, and I feel even more strongly so now with 12.3. So strongly, in fact, that I already have 12.3 installed as the default boot on all of my computers.

That covers a very wide range of hardware, I haven't had a single device that didn't work, and I didn't have to do any special adjustment, configuration, driver download, compiling or anything else.
