Opensuse Taken to Task by Ubuntu Linux

While many consider Opensuse to be the best distribution out there, others find it difficult and not dependable. There seems to be an increasing number of stories from people whose hardware and habits fail to cope with Opensuse. Then, many of them move to Ubuntu GNU/Linux, which is where plenty of the hype resides and settles nowadays. To present one such story:

Last week, I actually installed Novell's openSuse 10.2 over Ubuntu. "The grass is greener on the other side" they say. So I thought...boy was I wrong! Not to bad mouth Suse but it failed miserably in speed, stability, and ease of use when compared to Ubuntu. Having tried openSuse and Fedora, I now join the multitude of Linux users in saying that Ubuntu is by far the most user-friendly distribution available.


Here are some more recent stories where Ubuntu beats Opensuse.



With an estimated 8 million users, it seems like somewhat of a bloodbath. Ubuntu had returned to top positions in DistroWatch, but be sure to read our most recent referral to these statistics, which should always be taken with a grain of salt.
