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.

RE[2]: KDE

I have found no differences of performance between Fedora, Kubuntu and even Arch KDE's. Arch which was supposed to be the "faster" KDE, it's really not. It is just the same to me. Now I am a bit glad that I got fglrx working alright in Kubuntu. But Kubuntu took the lead because it ships the Ubuntu fonts, which I find them really nice for the UI, whereas other distros are using weird fonts.

I still see some shortcomings with KDE, but it's just some PolicyKit crashes, the plain X non-aliased fonts, and minor configuration as defaults. If one can spend the time to overcome this, it's actually better than GNOME.
