SuSE, openSUSE And another popular Linux distribution pushes a new release out the door. This time around, it's openSUSE, as they just released version 12.1. Other than the usual latest and greatest version of all the open source desktops and associated tools, there's a few other interesting tidbits in this release as well.

Absolutely, I ran openSuse 12.1, PCLinuxOS KDE and Pardus with Virtual Box on my office Win7. They perform better than Xubuntu, especially Pardus.

I think you guys are right. I am currently running Kubuntu and it was nowhere near as snappy as Ubuntu 11.04 was and I am running 11.10 right now. I am going to give OpenSuse a shot when I get my new work laptop. Too much hassle to reinstall and set up all my development tools.

I know that feeling, that is why I switched to Slackware. It comes with all the development tools as standard. All I need to do on a new install is clone my git repositories and away I go!!! Live is good in Slackware!

Seeing that Linux is known to be more for the "techie" style people, why don't more distros include development tools as standard. Beats me!
