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?

Bloatware for some, is useful for others. For me latex is a must, which is included on the OpenSUSE DVD. It takes I guess around 500MB or more. And with it, I can write my journal papers without worrying about what to install.
