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?

Member since:

Why do you say its 4x the size of other distros?
Fedora-9-x86_64-DVD.iso 4066110 KB or 4G
Fedora-9-i386-DVD.iso 3496758 KB or 3.4G

ubuntu I don't think has a dvd, so hard to compare. Though I think the opensuse live-cds are on part with all the rest. Not that they can get much bigger than about 700/750? ;)
