SuSE, openSUSE SoftwareInReview takes a look at SUSE 10.1, and summarizes: "While SUSE Linux 10.1 has lost some ground on its wonderful predecessor, I can see where it is headed in the future - and I like what I'm envisioning. A mildly buggy release like 10.1 was necessary in the big picture, unless of course Novell had opted to wait until issues with Atheros drivers, the ZENworks updater, and XGL were resolved. That would have resulted in a 'skipped' release, I think. Despite the trouble I had with 10.1, none of the problems were showstoppers, nor would they keep me from continuing to use and recommend SUSE Linux."

Modernize the Install

Priority one should be too mondernize the install. While its good that they offer an everything-plus-the-kitchen-sick set of discs, they need to have a Live disk on the first CD and a installer script that runs from there. If you don't have the remaining 5 cds (yes it's 6 disk set!) you should be able to use the internet. And the whole install experience needs to be trimmed down --take a lesson for Xandros whos got the best traditional installer out there.

actually you can, and have been able to for quite some time now... suse supports ftp, http and nfs, along with support for openslp.
