As I mentioned in the post before this one, I'm looking to install openSUSE on my test box when it's new hard drive arrives.

In the meantime, I've been playing with it as a Virtualbox guest... Initially, during the install, I was a little unimpressed and started to wonder if I might have to try an alternative distro. However, first impressions aren't always accurate. I'm currently very impressed!

The install I performed was on a standard 8GB virtual disk. I rather...

versions released: 0.1 (base) and 0X.1 (extended)
