One Year with OpenSUSE by New Year's

intj-astral
I've done it- I will have spent a year with OpenSUSE Linux by January 2009. I bought a notebook before Christmas of 2007, fussed a bit with Vista, then proceeded to remove it and replace it with Suse Linux.

I soon needed Vista again, and I used GParted to set up for dual booting (the details of which I can post on request).

With Suse in the first half of the drive and Vista in the second, they coexist without any problem. When version 11.1 is released in a few days, I will burn the DVD iso to a disk and simply install the upgrade over the old system and enjoy it. Ah, if only love life was as smooth as my Suse experience.

So how was your first year, if you happen to be a Linux user?

    Not bad at all. I've a bit more than a year in it, but not much more. I've been using Ubuntu, dual-booting with XP on my desktop machine. If I had the hardware to push XP with Office 2007 in Virtual Box, I'd redo her and run it that way instead.

    Some minor annoyances is about it. I don't think I have the control via GUI that Windows gives me. I didn't like fiddling in the configuration files via command line to accomplish a couple of things. But the benefits outweigh the annoyances, for sure.

    All in all, I'm glad I started playing in Linux.
