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.

The Libreboot C201 from Minifree is really really really ridiculously open source

Open source laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
