openSUSE 12.1 Review:

  • Noteworthy is the fact that openSUSE is the first major Linux distribution to ship color management tools for both the GNOME and KDE desktops!
  • On the client side, openSUSE 12.1 introduces Chromium 16 (Such a refreshing contrast from Fedora!)
  • WebYaST remote system management tool offers a much improved web interface to administer openSUSE systems remotely with new modules and better performance.
  • Snapper rolls back changes Screenshot
  • openSUSE 12.1 is the first Linux distribution taking advantage of the snapshot functionality in the upcoming Linux file system btrfs. These snapshots of the file system are using copy-on-write, making them very space efficient. openSUSE 12.1 debuts Snapper which allows the user to interface with this technology.


  • XFCE 4.8 Desktop

  • KDE 3 is avaiable. WOW.

  • Tumbleweed, the unique rolling release repository for openSUSE, can be considered “complete” at the time of this release. Covering almost all of the openSUSE 12.1 packages,

  • Tumbleweed offers newer versions as soon as they are deemed stable.

  • How to install ATI Driver
