openSUSE - a distro for true elitists (1)

...or so I imagine it will be! 92% through the .iso download :-)

From what I saw of 10.2, openSUSE is a sweet distro, and I find that there's a nice online community surrounding the project.

I recently bought myself an Asus P3SV laptop computer, which is based on the Intel Santa Rosa platform. This distro is set to be the first of my favourite distros (Fedora, Debian, openSUSE) to offer decent support my hardware (the closest I've got so far is Ubuntu Feisty with a custom vanilla Linux, with patches and firmware from the iwlwifi project).

I'd love to see support for my Intel PRO/Wireless 4965 AGN, and I hope the NVIDIA non-free driver works nicely with Xen (I'll be virtualising some enterprise Linux and probably Windows Vista Ultimate). One other thing I'd love to see: improved default fonts for KDE and Gnome on openSUSE. From my experience so far, Fedora has the best font support of any distribution. I hear that Fedora's freetype library is responsible for the beautifully rendered fonts (I even saw these incorporated into the nice, vanilla KDE of Fedora 8 Test 2).

Congratulations to the openSUSE Project for this release, and also a shout-out to my other favourite GNU/Linux distributions, Debian and Fedora. :-)
