“If you have experience with various Linux distros, it’s hard to
be excited about openSUSE, as on the surface it doesn’t seem to
have changed that much in recent years. Of course, open source
development doesn’t stand still, so you’ll find a lot of major
version bumps in the distribution’s software when you upgrade from
openSUSE 11.3 to 11.4, especially if you choose the KDE desktop
environment. OpenSUSE 11.4 gives you the newest KDE 4.6,
LibreOffice 3.3.1 and even beta 12 of Firefox 4. Under the hood the
developers have also integrated the newest components, including
Linux kernel 2.6.37 (the 32-bit kernel supports 4 GB of RAM, no
need to install a PAE kernel), X.Org 1.9 and Mesa 7.9.”
