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.

Member since:

And I said that a Compaq Deskpro didn't work and neither did an Asus Netbook and an IBM Thinkpad was mentioned as well. Please define generic.

I will repeat it one more time: OUT OF THE BOX Windows might or might not support the hardware, but there is always a driver-cd, windows update driver or a driver on the manufacturers website so you WILL get ALL your hardware working.
OUT OF THE BOX Linux might or might not support the hardware, by searching online or adding alternative repositories (binary drivers) you can add some more driver support but I have NEVER gotten ALL hardware working
