openSUSE 12.1 & Fedora 16

openSUSE 12.1 & Fedora 16

Article from Issue 134/2012

With this month’s DVD, you get to test the latest offerings from the openSUSE [1] and Fedora [2] projects

The distributions share a set of new features in updated versions, such as GRUB 2, Gnome 3.2, and KDE 4.7. On the kernel side, Fedora and openSUSE go a step further, incorporating the recently released kernel version 3.1.

In addition to the tried and trusted ext3 and ext4 filesystems, openSUSE also offers Btrfs. Associated with Btrfs is Snapper [3], a cool new SUSE-specific tool that allows you to swap between different snapshots of a filesystem. By creating snapshots and offering a rollback, Snapper can recover data that otherwise might have been lost.
