SuSE, openSUSE And another popular Linux distribution pushes a new release out the door. This time around, it's openSUSE, as they just released version 12.1. Other than the usual latest and greatest version of all the open source desktops and associated tools, there's a few other interesting tidbits in this release as well.

Out of the box, Linux beats any OS hands down on hardware support. Installing say WinXP on my ageing Dell Inspiron 9100 laptop, and nothing works out of the box. Crappy display resolution, no sound, no bluetooth, no wireless, no networking. I have to install driver after driver, and reboot after reboot before they all work. Install Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on that same laptop, and all the above hardware works out of the box (and in under 40 minutes)!
