Suse 10.1 review!

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

Purpose:

To directly compare the release of SUSE 10.1 to SUSE 10 in the eyes of the end user.

In this review, I'm hopefully going to highlight most of the changes Joe end-user might notice when upgrading or switching over to 10.1.

My Test Hardware:

LG LU-20 Centrino laptop
1Gig of RAM
60 Seagate HDD
855GMe chipset
Integrated Graphics (intel 'extreme graphics')
ICH4 integrated sound.
802.11b Intel Pro Wireless Mini-PCI. (aka ipw2100)

---

It pleases me to see improvements right off the bat.

The installation:

As with every SUSE release we get to see some new eye-candy and graphics on the install, and this time around SUSE has not left me disappointed in the least. You could suggest the new look smells a bit of apples but as far as I care as long as my eyes don't bleed I'm happy.

Full Story.

  • ocs-client GSoC
    So my GSoC is coming to its end. I have no cool screenshots to upload this time and I have no new great features to talk about, in fact Caludio and I manly focused on bugfixing and testing. We have spent time also discussing about possible changes and improvements to the current OCS protocol. So is the client ready do be lunched? In short I would say that no, not yet.. although most of its features are implemented and it is usable, it is still an “under construction” project, we both still have to make some important decisions to make it usable to everyone.
  • The Fiber Engine Poll, Updates, and Breeze
  • Bringing Akonadi Next up to speed
    and refactoring it again, to make sure the codebase remains as clean as possible. The result of that is that an implementation of a simple resource only takes a couple of template instantiations, apart from code that interacts with the datasource (e.g. your IMAP Server) which I obviously can’t do for the resource.
  • New linter integration plugins for KDevelop
  • Artikulate Plans for Randa
    Language learning is often considered as the task of memorizing new vocabulary and understanding the new grammar rules. Yet for most, the most challenging part is to actually get used to speak the new language. This is a problem that Artikulate approaches with a simple idea: to learn the correct pronunciation of a word or even a longer phrase, the learner listens to a native speaker recording, repeats and recordings it, and finally compares both recordings to improve herself/himself with the next try.
