SuSE, openSUSE Stephan Kulow has announced the availability of the first development release of openSUSE 11.0: "We'd like to kick start the development of openSUSE 11.0 with releasing the current state of Factory as Alpha0 release. Since the release of 10.3, we checked in 2,187 packages including such fundamental package updates as GCC 4.3.0, Linux kernel 2.6.24-rc4, X.Org 7.3, KDE 3.5.8 and 4.0 RC1, CUPS 1.3.4, ALSA 1.0.15, GIMP 2.4 and YaST 2.16. The change between 10.3 and Alpha0 is big, but it still works pretty nicely." More here.

Updates Instead???

Can one of the major distros just apply UPDATES to a base version of the OS to make it stable?

I like updated software just like anyone else, but wouldn't an UPDATE be more in order here?

The versions are moving just WAY TOO FAST here, IMHO.

I mean...we just got 10.2, with 10.3 right behind it and already they're thinking about 11???
