eminently fair and for the most part, accurate. I think any inaccuracies could be attributable to unfamiliarity rather than bias. If this reviewer hadn't been what I would call a 'Power-user', and had instead been someone converting from Windows, not only would they probably not have had a successful install
because he is a power user, he have four linux on his laptop. It's already good if he could install at all. He don't say what answers he give to the questions, but, for example, is glad to have Yast asking if he wants to keep old users. Do you think he could have such question on a fresh install? I beg no. He is making an update. and what was the old Linux? who knows?
so may be he got wireless working because it was working on the old install and so the firmware was at hand (how could he have it if not?) and x don't working because the old install was not completely compatible with the old one.
any intelligent review must be done on a fresh (not new) computer if it wants to be other than individual experience
this is the install of a power user upgrading an old install.
