I believe that openSUSE would have been just as good a fit on a netbook
I think the reason things like this keep going Ubuntu is not that Ubuntu
is better but that LTS
makes Ubuntu more usable and more re-installable because its less update
openSUSE 10.3 , A very likable and usable version takes almost 2 gb of
updates to get to it's best.
if all these updates had been rolled into a 10.3 LTS ISO it could have
taken HP's breath away!
It's our duty to find a way to keep the libre\free version of SUSE as
close to enterprise as possible without stealing it's thunder.
We have to find a blend of reliability and pioneering edge. SLED moves
to slow for personal usage yet, IMHO , openSUSE seems to move to fast.
There's probably a lot of performance / bloated perception problems
too, especially for such an underpowered machine. Out of the box,
openSUSE crawls on my netbook (Acer Aspire One) while Ubuntu is quite
nippy. Of course, with a few file system tweaks, a new kernel,
removing beagle and a couple other services -- openSUSE is every bit
as fast. Yet it leaves people with the impression "openSUSE is slow,
Ubuntu is fast."
the only netbook to carry any version of SuSE
is now not doing so, that is 7 out of 7 running something other than
SuSE. No netbooks for my family this year ;)
This is an important detail to me as these are largely going into
children's hands and umm, I started the openSUSE EDU
project. Please lets help HP and Lenovo come home!
