openSUSE 11.4

A huge thanks and a round of applause to the openSUSE developers.

The openSUSE team has made a lot of mature, well thought-out decisions recently, and the project is growing and improving constantly. Some really exceptional features of openSUSE include: the SUSE build service, SUSEstudio, and the new Tumbleweed repository. openSUSE also continues to be one of the very few distros that actually cares about desktop-agnostic GUI system configuration tools; the latest YaST works via QT, GTK, console, and now even through a web interface.

openSUSE is very far from perfect. It has inherited much of the cruft, bugs, chaos, and instability of the libre software ecosystem. And they don't have resources to fix it all. But they are trying, and it's definitely good enough for my laptop. It's a truly unique, well managed, outstanding project in a sea of mediocrity.
