Reading the latest Aaron Seigo’s blog post I completely froze, for good!
To quote him:
i’ve got OpenSuse 10.3 on the new machine and i have to say that i’m more than pleased with it. i was afraid i’d miss apt-get … but zypper rocks.
the rpm search through community contributions is yet another really great thing that has happened during my hiatus from suseland; really nice to see and something i’m sure to use again in the future…
after seeing 10.3 i was impressed enough to try it out again; i’m a little tired of the *buntu world these days and unhappy with some of their decisions. didn’t help that on my last upgrade of my laptop, it rendered my system unusable due to a screw up in their evms packaging; this was doubly “humorous” as the system wasn’t using evms at all. it was just installed and that was enough. this isn’t the first time such a catastrophic update has come down those apt-get pipes _so it’s just in time for me that OpenSuse starts to look like its back on the rails again. there were even kde4 packages available as an option in the installer =)
I must say: welcome back aseigo!
