SuSE Linux 8.0 came into this world on April 22, 2002.

Not long after the major write of KDE for version 2.0 came KDE 3.0. This release changed the toolkit underneath from Qt 2 to Qt 3, but bore relatively few highly visible changes. The highly customized and green KDE theme from SuSE Linux 7.3 remains almost perfectly unchanged in SuSE Linux 8.0. I also ran an early version of the Mozilla browser, which seems to bear a much more modern looking interface than Netscape Communicator, which by this point had lost the browser wars. GNOME 1.4 seems to have a somewhat greener theme and downstream interface tweaks as well, but with no significant version upgrade remains similar in features and functionality. This release also had a similar animations heavy boot screen to SuSE Linux 7.3. Also, if you want to test a trivial fact, the test music in YaST2's audio module remains unchanged in modern versions of openSUSE.

This is the earliest release in VirtualBox for which I didn't have to find some hack to get graphics to function properly. After setting the OS to Linux kernel 2.4 in the VirtualBox New VM wizard, there were no hiccups with set up and installation. There are some nice improvements the openSUSE distribution begins to have guest integration with VirtualBox by default, but this didn't come until 2009.

Back one, SuSE Linux 7.3:
Next up, SuSE Linux 8.1:
