openSUSE 11.3: The Linux Lizard Lives

"openSUSE 11.3, the latest version of Novell's community Linux OS was released on July 15th. I've put the OS through its paces for the last several days and I have to say that while I continue to be impressed with the functionality of openSUSE, I'm not seeing a huge amount of sexy in the latest release.

"At best, I'd call openSUSE 11.3 a bug fix/service pack for 11.2 and 11.1. There are a few new features, most of which are under the hood, but from an end-user perspective there isn't a heck of a lot of new stuff to see here.

"I'd liken openSUSE 11.3 to the "Windows 7″ of openSUSE releases, where 11.1 and 11.2 were more "Vista". Most of this can be attributed to the fact that KDE 4.x prior to the most recent 4.3 and 4.4.x builds was horrendously unstable."
