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.

The problem with Linux is that if it doesn't detect lets say your wireless card, you are pretty much screwed, you need to google for a How to guide and even compile it from source and edit config files and even so it will hardly work, In windows you just need the installer from the vendor and that's it.

Then start bitching to the Vendors and demand that you want Linux drivers from them too. Why must Linux devs always reverse engineer every damn driver without any help from the vendors. Simply because those Vendors are too damn stuck-up, and closed minded!

Either way, the Linux devs have done an excellent job doing what they are doing.
