I installed OpenSUSE this weekend and - I guess you've heard it before - it boots in about 10 seconds!! It's amazing when this happens to your own computer :-)
The distribution is still called SUSE, only the project developing it is called openSUSE.
Really just 10 secs? HoW??? I have 9.3 now and It takes ~65 secs on a athlong 64 2800+, 1gb ddr400 ram, WD sata disk. What is your system config? If this is true, it is amazing, well I don't need this so much, because I don't shut down my computer often, but my dad is working on a P3 600Mhz, 512MB ram and it takes half more to boot up.
Well, it's not 10 but 20 seconds - I exaggerated a bit ;-)
I counted from confirming SUSE in grub till the login screen appears. Still, it's considerably faster than SUSE 9.3 I had before.
Still good! It's comparable to XP.
Does this new SUSE use HAL yet? SUSE's "device manager" used to bug me to death (especially for USB harddrives and those weird, long mountpoints!)
