Yes, I'm not usually a SUSE fan, but this release looks lovely.

PS. There is more info about the new boot stuff here:
http://news.opensuse.org/?p=104

From the linked article:

"""
People claiming that you do not need to defragment on Linux must never boot. On your 10.2 installation above for example, after 2-5 system updates it would probably take 80s to boot instead.

"""

Wow. How can I argue with that kind of hard data?

Seems like it would have been *extremely* easy to demonstrate that with another boot chart... if it were true. Color me skeptical. Unless Suse updates do something particularly egregious, I just don't see it.

That one statement is so questionable that it makes me wonder a bit about the whole article.

Edit: Clarified that I was referring to the parent comment's linked article and not the main story's link.
