SuSE, openSUSE "We're glad to announce SUSE Linux 10.2 Codename 'Basilisk Lizard' Alpha2. It's downloadable from today on and will be the last community/consumer distribution called SUSE Linux. We'll rename SUSE Linux into openSUSE." And the release announcement lists some changes, with a referral to CD1, where the changelog can be found. And there was much rejoicing. No, really.

I think the original point was that 10.1 has a problem with the out of box package manager, which is just plain wrong for any distro to release like that. Smart package manager can be used in any distro, but last few times I've used it, I didn't think it was quite as useful as some of the other package managers I've used (like Synaptic) but maybe that's just because it's in an earlier stage of development.

I don't disagree with you. Novell made a mistake with Suse 10.1 and their package manager. Zen, which is the package manager in question, still has away to go to ( even in SLED 10 ). With all eles considering though, suse 10.1 is a great distro and the package management is very easy to fix. It is in my opinion one of, if not the best distro's available. If not for the broken package management it would easily be the best.

If only the Suse community were as strong as Ubuntu's ;)

Someday, it will happen. SUSE keeps getting better very fast, while Ubuntu, like many other distros, keep improving but not so fast...
