The openSUSE project has seen several changes of hands in recent years - from an independent Linux distribution to a Novell project and now part of Attachmate Corporation. As a result, it's only natural that many users wonder how all these transformations affect the development of the distribution. But as Susan Linton attests in "Has the Novell Deal Hampered openSUSE?", the development process for the upcoming release of version 11.4 continues at high speed: "The crowning jewel of the all the recent news was the release of the latest 11.4 developmental milestone. This release includes the much touted Galbraith Latency patch that is believed to increase desktop performance. They are also including the latest desktop environments: KDE 4.6 beta 1 and GNOME 2.32.2. GNOME 3.0 won't be released in time for 11.4. OpenOffice.org has been removed in favor of LibreOffice. Midori Web browser, Rosegarden music composer/editor, and Gnash Flash viewer have been added. Final release is planned for March 2011. So, add all this up and you'll see that openSUSE isn't going away - far from it. The Novell deal hasn't hampered their fun. They are moving forward full steam ahead."

Due to that patch think I'll wait for 11.4 to upgrade my 11.2 boxes.

Not sure about Libre Office as a replacement for OO. I guess it will be interesting to try it out

Ditto to bdquick and MattB4. Don't know that I've ever heard of the Midori browser, have to check it out.

Its a newer browser that's supposed to be lightweight and fast. I tried it probably a year ago when it was still heavily in development, but at that time it wasn't very usable. I'm sure its come a long way if Opensuse has decided to include it.

As for libre office, that shouldn't be a big deal. At this point its just a fork of Open Office with different logos.
