"The most noticeable issue was that I couldn't get the YaST configuration utility to work after I completed the installation. It worked fine when I was running the Live CD, but not when launched from the installed environment. The installer also prompted me to create a user account twice—once in the initial installer wizard and a second time during the post-install configuration process. Aside from these glitches, OpenSUSE 11.1 beta 3 delivers a pretty good user experience.

"It comes with GNOME 2.24, which was released last month. That includes a handful of nice improvements, such as support for tabbed file browsing. OpenSUSE's GNOME environment ships with a great assortment of default applications. One particularly pleasing addition to beta 3, for instance, is Tasque—a to-do list utility that can integrate with the Remember the Milk web service."
