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?

I have just installed the OpenSuSE 11 GM KDE CD.

They have undoubtedly eliminated a lot of minor quirks.
Installing packages is due to a faster libzyp stack painless and you don't have wait too long on the dependancy checker.

OpenSuse 11 installed and behaved similar on my HP laptop. Kewl, suzie has a ATI drivers community repo :-)

I can't wait for my retail box to arrive.

Don't forget to add "NoPowerConnectCheck" "on" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf if your graphics card doesn't have an external power connector:-)
