"It may not be as cool as Ubuntu or as cutting-edge as Fedora, but I've always had a soft spot for openSUSE Linux. Like MEPIS, another old favorite of mine, openSUSE just works and works well. The last couple of versions didn't really get me excited though. They seemed more incremental than real advances. Now, though, now, I'm excited by the brand new openSUSE 11.4 release.

"Why? Well, a bunch of things really. First, 11.4 uses the 2.6.37 Linux kernel. This kernel does a much better job of scaling virtual memory. That doesn't matter much to me on my desktop, but it has mattered a lot from time to time over the years on my servers."
