but are you aware of the panoply of reported problems in 11.1?

even worst, there are panoply of whinnying users that prefer to be part
of the problem instead of part of the solution and fail to recognize

I attempt to be part of the solution, by having no less than 7 installations
of openSUSE Factory on different systems, as well as at least one
installation of every release back to 9.2, besides filing bugs at
buzilla.novell.com and upstream as I find them.

that a software product will always have bugs that may affect certain,
specific use-cases, but that does not mean it is "broken" for everyone
else nor a reason to misguide other people recommending them to install
an older version.

It's pretty widely believed in the openSUSE community that some releases are
better than others. My experience is support for such believes is valid.

Among those poorer releases are 9.1 (first 2.6 kernel), 10.1 (rug and messed
up YaST software management) & the short-fused
rush-to-release-before-Christmas and imminent-release-of-SLES/SLED 11.1 (long
list, among which broken Intel video and common boot loader
misconfigurations). Those who don't believe about 11.1 should get an
explanation why a month after official release of kernel 2.6.28 that the
newest kernel in factory/repo/oss/suse/i586 is 2.6.27.
