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?

Yes, I have and I quite like it sofar. I choose SUSE cause they offer really good KDE packages for 4.1devel ( KDE4live is also build on the same base ).

I _love_ the installer, it is beautiful and very straight forward. I like the no root (sudo) and autologin option and the integrated selection for community and extra repositories.

Like I said above I enabled KDE factory and updated to 4.1beta right away. And so far I haven't had a problem. *knocks on wood* .. but it is still beta .. so beware.
