SuSE, openSUSE A review of OpenSUSE 10.3, which concludes: "While openSUSE's efforts to simplify Linux or Window-fy Linux can be commended, the inconsistency in their implementation is its downfall. Opening applications quickly becomes a chore with the excessive amount of clicks needed to find the application you want. The application browser loads slowly, looks cluttered, and uses icons that are too large. Yast has been improved but still feels slow."

The reviewer is absolutely correct that install takes way to long. But once installed I found it to be responsive. YaST seems improved, it loads fast, some of the plugins(?) seemed to take a while when invoked.

I didn't see where the reviewer mentioned what hardware was used in the review. SUSE has never been the best distro for older hardware,there are other distros targeting this market.

I didn't find any glaring problems with this release, everything worked as one would expect it to. Still, overall, this release is no threat to my current desktop (Linux Mint).
