We like openSUSE 10.1. Really, we do. And, it's not just us -- openSUSE has been holding onto second place, after Ubuntu, for months now on DistroWatch, and it's even been crawling close to first place in recent days. There's just been this one little, well not so little really, problem: the revised YaST package manger, which is used for adding new programs and updating old ones, has stunk. There have been fixes, but they've all left something to be desired. Perhaps the biggest single problem was simply this: when you have a broken package manager, how do you use it to fix itself? It was doable. It was also painful. Now, the openSUSE project has finally come up with the most practical fix of all: SUSE Linux 10.1 "remastered."
