NETBOOKS AND TOUCHSCREENS are among the technology supported by Open Suse Linux version 11.3.
The new features of this release also include support for the Btrfs file system and both 32-bit and 64-bit systems. Users are also told they can expect better hardware support from the 2.6.34 Linux kernel and updated graphics drivers.
Along with these underlying improvements users can get their hands on Spideroak, to sync files across the Internet for free, Rosegarden, for free editing of audio files, and updates to Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird.
Open Suse goes on to explain that it continues its tradition of delivering the popular KDE, Gnome and Xfce desktop environments and now also provides the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
With Gnome, the latest 2.30.1 version can be used, but a preview of the upcoming Gnome 3.0 can also be installed. Otherwise users can choose KDE SC 4.4.4 for the latest updates. The next version of Open Suse, 11.4, is forecast for release in March 2011. µ
