The hacker incident let me play with recent SuSe Isos.
KDE is packed with everything a desktop user needs.
It still has a very well the organized desktop but launching a program and backing off is cumbersome feature for me.
It lacks lot of features present in PCLinux-2010 but compared to PCLinux partitioning utility its partitioning (graphic) tool has many features and the fstab configuration feature is excellent.
PCLinux has problems with other type of partitions at install time.
It was not a problem with earlier versions.
YAST (yet another system and teaching tool -I call it) is the best teaching tool for a newbie to learn.
Overall it is a good version if one is looking for a Window’s like distribution.
But the Embrace, Expand and Explode (extinguish) policy of Microsoft might do some permanent damage to this system and kill it’s spirituality in time to come.
Watch out for the 3Es.
(In science Explore, Engage (in a hypothesis), Explain, Expand, Evaluate the consequences).
Interestingly, our hierarchy in political circles use the same Es to extinguish opposition parties.
Bada Gannawa, Pumbanawa (bribing) and Pupuranawa (once the job is accomplished) Principle of Microsoft is truly working with vigour here.
