With the sea-salt whiff of Fedora 16
still hanging in the air, we now have another updated Linux distribution based on the new 3.1 kernel
. OpenSUSE 12.1 offers the GNOME 3.2 shell along with KDE, Xfce and LXDE desktop flavors should you prefer something different. There are goodies like Chromium
17 and Firefox 7
and improved server side tools including WebYaST, Horde 4 apps and the ability to run on the Amazon EC2
cloud. The source link below lists plenty more improvements and of course they're all free. Download now and debate the economics later.
