What's up with SuSE?
Tuesday, 10 October 2006

Darn, why do I get the impression that SuSE is going to the dogs?

I recently found some time to upgrade my main workstation from SuSE 10.0 to 10.1. You would think that not much could go wrong between these versions. Despite having made preparations and read the notes, SuSE upgrade from DVD just did whatever it wanted. After the upgrade I found that software had been removed, same with YaST repositories and whole bunch of things added for no obvious reason. The one that especially annoyed me is ZEN. Man, what a useless tool. Why do I want that on my desktop when YaST and YOU are so much better.

Soon after this I was presented with an opportunity to install afresh on my laptop. After several attempts, I finally got SuSE 10.1 installed, but not everything was detected and I had a bitch of a time trying to make a wireless adapter that had worked in 10.0 do the same in 10.1. Finally, I lost patience, I trashed all the work and installed Kubuntu 6.06, which installed first time and detected everything. It was truly a flawless setup.

Now I have been a pretty loyal SuSE follower, when it comes to my own desktops. However, I cannot ignore that there are some serious problems with SuSE which seems to be regressing rather than progressing at the moment. At least I know I am not the only person who thinks so. A recent pole on asked the question, “Do you think that the quality of the SUSE distributions is going down?” majority of people answered yes and a fair proportion thought maybe. Perhaps the Novell influence is not going to be such a good thing after all.

Perhaps it is time to install Kubuntu all round?
