SuSE, openSUSE SoftwareInReview takes a look at SUSE 10.1, and summarizes: "While SUSE Linux 10.1 has lost some ground on its wonderful predecessor, I can see where it is headed in the future - and I like what I'm envisioning. A mildly buggy release like 10.1 was necessary in the big picture, unless of course Novell had opted to wait until issues with Atheros drivers, the ZENworks updater, and XGL were resolved. That would have resulted in a 'skipped' release, I think. Despite the trouble I had with 10.1, none of the problems were showstoppers, nor would they keep me from continuing to use and recommend SUSE Linux."

I spent couple of hours getting the XGL to work on my x86_64 box with nvidia. I did not have a a good experience, sometimes the borders would disappear. I installed KDE and GNOME. For some strange reason I had to fire up Gnome to get XGL to work in KDE. There are so many changes that you have to make to get XGL working that the best you can do is reinstall to get a normal system.
