I’m not going to review the latest release of openSUSE, 11.2, here. For that, you can look forward to reading my head-to-head shoot-out of Fedora 12, Ubuntu 9.10, and openSUSE 11.2 sometime soon. What I can say now though is that if you’re interested in a solid, reliable desktop Linux, openSUSE 11.2 is a contender.
I’ve been running SUSE distributions on my desktops and servers for years now, and they’ve always worked well. Indeed, if you’re looking for a corporate Windows desktop replacement, SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) 11, openSUSE’s business big-brother, stands heads and shoulders above the Linux desktop competition. Indeed, Novell’s SLED is the most strongly supported Linux business desktop offering out there.
