Coming in between the releases of Ubuntu 9.10 and Fedora 12 is openSUSE 11.2, which is available as of this morning. The openSUSE 11.2 desktop is now using KDE 4.3 by default (though GNOME 2.28 is also available), OpenOffice.org 3.1 integration, the Linux 2.6.31 kernel, and many other underlying advancements.

Novell sent over a gold master copy of openSUSE 11.2 earlier this week, which we have been playing around with, and overall this appears to be a nice openSUSE release. Additional details on openSUSE 11.2 is available from the marketing team's announcement and at openSUSE News. This release is available in 32-bit and 64-bit versions as a DVD or as LiveCD spins for both GNOME and KDE, which all can be downloaded at openSUSE.org.
