Chris’ notes as he setup openSUSE 11.4:
*Easy one click SSH enable & firewall setup
*Dual Monitor worked out of the box, but a bit rough still.
*Update Manager not totally understandable, but works fine.
*Bold choice to include Firefox 4 Beta 12, I like!
*YaST seems to have removed many redundancy it once shared with KDE’s built in tools
*Boot times seem longer than expected, but once KDE loads it pops right up
*Had a few system hard lock ups
*Keyboard repeat rate seems to be a bit insane
*First DVD burn failed, IRC chatters report multiple bad DVD burns. My second DVD burn was dandy.
