"Over the past few months we've taken both Fedora and
Ubuntu out for a spin, so when the openSUSE project announced the
latest testing (or "beta") version of its Linux distribution had
been released, we couldn't resist the temptation.
"We booted the LiveCD Gnome-based version of openSUSE 11.1 beta
4 in a virtualised environment using VMWare Workstation. We then
installed the operating system on a virtual hard disk to test it
"We found openSUSE to be very fast in a virtualised environment
compared to our previous Ubuntu experiences, but there's nothing
scientific in this test."
