If things don't improve, 11.1 may be the one distro I skip.

9.1 was first 2.6 release, hardly a good release. 10.1 had a butchered
package management system, definitely not a good release. 11.1? I'm not sure
I've seen a clearly major guffaw, but there sure seems to be a lot of minors
and near majors: KDE4 still isn't anywhere near as useful as KDE3. Wireless
problems. Partitioner usability problems. RAID problems. Chopped off
non-resizable columns in YaST2. Failure to boot. DVD access problems.
Horrible Intel video performance. What did I miss?

Novell should have stuck to an 8-9 month release plan and let 11.1 out Feb or
March. I'm thinking my 10.2 replacement box may need to get 11.0 instead of
11.1. I need to decide soon. 11.0 could get done today instead of waiting for
the retail 11.1 to arrive.
