SuSE, openSUSE A new major release of Novell's community-supported distro openSUSE 11 is now available and can be downloaded from the mirrors. Linux Format has a hands-on look at the new installer, SLAB menu and Compiz Fusion, and weighs up whether the distro can fight competition from Ubuntu and Fedora. Is this the start of a new era for SUSE?

More like an opinion piece than a review

The author goes over some of the details but it's heavy on the anti-openSUSE rhetoric and heavy on the pro Ubuntu/Fedora rhetoric. I guess he's entitled to his opinion but maybe he should have titled as an opinion piece.

I'm downloading now and using the 11.0 RC 1. It's using kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1 so I think the kernel the author listed is outdated.
