Novell SUSE Linux has landed

Novell SUSE Linux has landed. SUSE Linux 9.1 – the first version of the distribution to come out after Novell bought the company late last year – will be available in Australia from May 1. SUSE has the second biggest marketshare among commercial distributions of the open source operating system. SUSE is the first commercial distribution to use the 2.6 kernel and the degree of responsiveness in the system has thus increased markedly. Many applications which seemed to be sluggish in version 9.0 now respond as though a fire had been lit under them – though this could be a cumulative effect, due to the lib C version and also the performance enhancements which have been incorporated into KDE.
