FC6 -> OpenSuSE 10.2


Can anyone confirm what OpenSuSE 10.2 is like compared to 10.1?

I have heard that 10.2 much much better (I left my loyal following of SuSE to Fedora in disgust after upgrading to 10.1).

I found 10.1 painfully slow, YaST was crippled and virtually impossible to get MP3 support working in much

I've now got FC6 running really nicely and don't want to format it away to be disappointed again with SuSE 10.2. However, I do still have a soft spot for SuSE and would like to return if 10.2 has been sorted out.

Any experiences on 10.2's speed and reliability?

YaST works better in 10.2. On the other hand they have removed all links from their web sites to help install MP3 or other naughty technologies. They now have a sanctimonious essay about how they don't want to be naughty and they would appreciate it if you would keep these terrible technologies off of your SuSE Linux system.

That's why I'm using PCLinuxOS now. The software repository, accessed via Synaptic, has all of the drivers that you need and want for audio and video playback.
