SuSE, openSUSE Linux.com reviews SUSE 10.1, and concludes: "With SUSE 10.1, Novell has embraced and extended its role as the leading desktop distribution. Given the amount of eye-popping eye candy and playtime 3-D effects available on this desktop, it's easy to forget that Novell is all about bringing Linux to the corporate - not the home - desktops. Yes, the money is all in the server market these days, but after the revolution Linux will inherit its rightful share of desktops, too."

I am a long time user of SUSE from 7.1 right up to 10.0. But Novell in my opinion have shot themselves in the foot with 10.1. It is slow, buggy and the package manager is dire. I have gone back to using 10.0 which runs at lightning speed on my box. I will now wait until a more stable version comes out before upgrading again. If your installation of 10.0 does what you need it do my advice is if it aint broke dont fix it.

Hmm that's interesting. I actually found 10.1 faster than 10.0 in my case - i just stay away from yast and zen when I can ;)
