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?

yawnnnnn. OK, If your beloved Ubuntu comes as DVD and CD, that is OK and not bloated at all. If Suse comes on a DVD and CD version it is bloat, because, after all, you know, there is only one Linux that gets repackaged over and over by the different distributions, so anything that qualifies as 4.3 GB of bloat on Suse inevitably is just as bloated on Ubuntu - can you solve that mystery for me? OK, I know you can't, I just felt like smart assing...
