Why openSUSE 11 is the Linux for me


Recently, my colleague James Turner reviewed openSUSE 11 and he liked it. It’s hard to tell from some of the notes he got back-shame on you people!–but he really did.

I, on the other hand, love openSUSE 11 and since Warren Woodford, the developer behind MEPIS, has had to put his great Debian-based Linux distribution on the back-burner for now, openSUSE 11 has become The Linux distribution as far as I’m concerned.

Why? Well, for me, openSUSE is easy to install. Yes, you need to decide if you want to use LVM (Logical Volume Manager) for storage, and that is a mysterious question for new users. But, as Turner points out, all you need do is click on the default choice instead and in a few minutes you’re in business.
