Opensuse 11.2

Recommended Posts

OpenSUSE_11.2_728x90.png

E passados 11 meses(!) da ultima release, eis a nova versão do openSUSE, a distribuição Linux que uso no dia-a-dia há mais de 4 anos.

--> What's new in openSUSE 11.2?

It's been a long time in coming, but it's finally here! Don't let the version number fool you! The openSUSE 11.2 release features new and massively improved versions of Firefox, OpenOffice.org, GNOME, KDE, and more than 1,000 open source desktop applications. openSUSE also includes a full suite of server software and a rich selection of open source development tools.

--> Under the Hood

openSUSE 11.2 comes with the latest version 2.6.31 of the Linux kernel, the beating heart of every openSUSE system. The default file system of openSUSE was switched to the new Ext4 as well. Of course, openSUSE continues to support Ext3 and other filesystems -- but on install, new partitions are automatically designated Ext4.

New desktop kernel -- Desktops and servers can use the same kernel, but it's better to tune the kernel for the job at hand. That's why openSUSE now includes a desktop kernel specially tuned for desktop users.

openSUSE 11.2 also includes new and updated drivers for your hardware, meaning more and newer devices work with openSUSE. In addition, special attention has been paid to the netbook market, and new drivers enable openSUSE to run better on a wider range of netbooks.

--> On the Desktop

openSUSE 11.2's desktop environments continue to evolve. In addition to the work of the openSUSE Project in the desktop, openSUSE 11.2 includes the latest versions of the two desktop environments, KDE 4.3 and GNOME 2.28.

KDE users will enjoy the new Firefox KDE integration, OpenOffice.org KDE4 integration, consistent KDE artwork and all standard applications being ported to KDE4 including KNetworkManager, Amarok, Digikam, k3b, Konversation and more.

GNOME users will notice a fresh new look to openSUSE 11.2 in the windows and user interface, called Sonar.

No matter what desktop you choose, openSUSE's web browser and office suite gains great new features. Mozilla Firefox 3.5 gives users more control over their browsing experience, including a Ctrl-Tab switch between tabs and a private browsing mode. OpenOffice.org 3.1 delivers even more new improvements to the office suite, such as the ability to carry out a structured conversation through the word processor's commenting functions, and major improvements to the graphics drawing application.

Já instalei no meu desktop e tal como estava à espera, impecável. Já sabia com o que contar pq a minha 11.1 já mais parecia tudo menos a 11.1 padrão lol mas mesmo assim fiquei surpreendido. O tempo de boot é balístico já que agora o kernel faz muito do trabalho inicial em modo concorrente. Tirando isso, é de louvar as integrações com o Firefox e OpenOffice, super útil. O PulseAudio também foi deixado desactivado nas instalações KDE o que me parece uma decisão acertada.

Há ainda algumas arestas por limar, sem dúvida, mas acho q este é mais um passo no caminho certo :) experimentem, é livre, é grátis!

Como é o tempo de boot quando comparado com o Karmic?

Não te posso dar uma comparação muito justa pq só meti o Karmic noutros PCs bem mais fracos q o meu mas penso que seja ela por ela embora o openSUSE ainda não use o Upstart que é o substituto do bem velinhinho init herdado do Sytem-V, o Karmic já usa. Não estou por dentro do Upstart e também não sei de nenhum benchmark que compare ambos. Digo-te que deve estar ela por ela.
