I installed openSUSE 11.2 and I must say I find it a candidate for the Linux desktop. One observation , and it started happen close to Christmas, was this screen (see photo) during the booting of openSUSE. (Taking a photography class is now on my to do list)
The boot screen looks like a postcard from the north pole. The tux Linux penguins were all decked out for the Christmas holidays.
I guess it is openSUSE’s way of saying “Merry Christmas and all the best for 2010”
