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?

"Please stay away from Suse as long as Novell has a patent protection deal with Microsoft. Please do not contribute in any way to a distro that promotes Microsoft's interests in the Open Source world. Do not contribute by using this distro, by filling bug reports, by helping the community, by translating, by packaging, by submitting patches and so on."

Blah blah blah blah blah.

I am having a hard time restraining the desire to shoot people in the face for endlessly flogging their pet hate which is the Novel/MS deal. shut it!

I also have a great teal of admiration for Elsewhere given his tireless patience in rebutting these cretinous arguments.
