OpenSUSE 12.1 available

The version is now available to download 12.1 by openSUSE, another of the distributions that has said goodbye to Gnome 2 to embrace the novelties of Gnome-Shell.

As is logical, this release has the latest versions of LXDE, Xfce, KDE y Gnome, although there is not much to highlight in the final finish of the desks. This version of openSUSE uses systemd for system startup, Xen 4.1KVM y VirtualBox.

I think the news is more focused on ownCloud, a way to have your files available online, allowing synchronization with our devices, without having to offer private data for it. Come on a Ubuntu One a lo SUSE.

Can host ownCloud either on your own server or on a rented server. Unfortunately this makes ownCloud a bit more complicated for various reasons, and that's where it comes in Mirall.

Mirall offers a client that sits in the systray and allows you to install, configure and start an instance ownCloud on your own computer or on a rented web space, with just a few clicks. Afterwards, Mirall ensures that the files are well synchronized.

Can read here the release notes or download it from this link.

In particular I do not like this distribution. Since previous versions that I have been able to test, I have felt very slow for a Desktop user, although I do not stop recognizing that Yast2 it is a powerful tool. But nothing, I guess the users of this distro are in luck ..

      Uyy you are almost right .. Well no, I like Debian that "if it flies". Don't take it personally, I have simply given my opinion based on my experience with openSUSE.

      I that your Pepe left this up to here, you are invoking forces that you cannot handle hehe. On the other hand I have always been curious to try this distro, I will find out more if I dare to download it and everything.

    Among my pending is to try Ubuntu 11.10, Fedora 16 and, now also, Opensuse 12.1. Let's see which one I encourage first, heh.

    And so, I have tried several versions of opensuse (the last one was 11.1) and I have not felt "slow", with the exception of the system startup; which, as I have read, has been improved a lot in this new version with "systemd".

      Maybe it's me and my way of perceiving things, but at least with Gnome 2, I was never comfortable with openSUSE. Slow as I couldn't and from time to time it stuck.

        Would you do something to make it stick

        1.    elav <° Linux said

          Nothing at all. Just use it. Did you do something to make KDE 4.7 not fluent?

          1.    Courage said

            It is not the same, KDE has some requirements (if the computer does not meet them, it does not run smoothly) and OpenSUSE is a distro, removing from Winbuntu most of the distros do not lock unless we do something

    I doubt very much that Winbuntu One is older. Otherwise I think it is the first time that you talk about OpenSUSE

    Talking about opensuse I just installed it on a Netbook. and at first it did give some kind of inconvenience but everything was solved and now I am totally convinced of openSuse 12… !!

    Ubuntu I use it only on Desktop PCs.
