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?

Ubunto and Fedora 64bit had no install issues for me on the x61. Issues are usually with the 32bit versions, or with things like Bluetooth.

I'll try again with openSUSE after a BIOS upgrade, but without Windows or an Ultrabase, its a real PITA to upgrade with the .iso supplied by IBM as it does not support USB CD/DVD drives and you have to jump through hoops to make a bootable USB stick.
