    look into boot. What do you find there on an arch system?

    That energyman has been reiterating the same moronic argument for months.

    Arch's versioning scheme is working perfectly. The package manager reports the correct version; you can install any version side-by-side; you can change the name to "look ma, no hands" and it will still work fine.

    This argument was stupid when energyman made it last year. It's still stupid now.

    It doesn't add the minor release version to the kernel name however
    Code:
    [email protected]:~$ uname -r
    2.6.30-ARCH
    ...but that's a name, nothing more.
    your point?

    openSUSE at the moment is de neutral. SLED in gnome biased and as energyman says don't be surprised if KDE becomes the default desktop again soon in openSUSE.

    might change soon. Opensuse users told novell that they are pissed off with all the gnome crap.

    if you want 'easy' go opensuse. Good KDE. Pretty recent software. Easy to use.

    The first time might take a couple of hours and some confusion until you get how everything is set up. The next time, you'll have a complete system up and running in less than 1 hour (provided you have a good internet connection and a fast hard drive ).

    The arch wiki is excellent and explains everything you might wish to know. The community is very active and supportive and you'll find PKBUILD scripts for everything you might need (and if you don't it's *trivial* to make a script yourself).

    Arch: where the beer is good and the software is up to date!
