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?

Isn't Picasa a frontend for Google's online service with some basic image manipulation thrown in? (Correct me if I'm wrong here.)

And digiKam doesen't sport a time-based way of navigating your photos like F-Spot does. (iPhoto inspired if I'm not mistaken.)

I never said those apps where great. The only Mono-app I actually use is Gnome-do. Beagle? I didn't mention it. Be carefull with your assumptions.

Even though I don't like the mono apps personaly I'm able to see that they're useful to a lot of people. That can't be a bad thing?

Now, since Java is now OSS I guess it's better to make stuff in Java if you're actually creating a new app and want it to write it in managed language.

If I'm playing music locally(or want to put music on a iPod) I do actually use Rythmbox. ;)
(But currently I'm more into using mpd/Sonata)

No. That would be "Picasa Web Albums". Picasa is full featured photo management software. See here:

No. DigiKam does support time based navigation. See here:

Indeed - that was me being sarcastic.


Beagle? I didn't mention it. Be carefull with your assumptions.

I know. It was offered as a counter-point to your general "Mono lets you write unique and amazing applications" theme.

P.S. Sssshhh! don't tell anyone but these internet sites are really cool:
