Novell unveils openSUSE 11.2
The latest version of openSUSE for server and desktop pays special attention to netbooks.
The new version includes version 2.6.31 of the Linux kernel, as well as a desktop specific kernel for the first time. It includes KDE 4.3 and GNOME 2.28 too.
Drivers have been updated, with "special attention" paid to making the OS work on netbooks. OpenSUSE can also be installed from a USB, making it even more netbook friendly.
Version 11.2 includes Firefox 3.5, OpenOffice 3.1, and a host of social networking applications built in. In all, the package comes with more than 1,000 open source desktop apps, as well as a suite of server and development tools, Novell noted.
The filesystem has been upgraded to ext4, and the entire disk can now be encrypted. In addition, it includes what Novell said is the first tech preview of WebYaST, a new web-based admin tool.
