Welcome to openSUSE 11.2. It was released on Thursday, November 12th, 2009. The new version of openSUSE improves your computing experience with more than 121 new features, including a fresh new look and feel for GNOME and KDE.

openSUSE 11.2 can be downloaded from software.opensuse.org and the openSUSE 11.2 retail edition can be purchased. The retail version is a version of openSUSE with a complete printed end-user manual, installation media plus 90 days of professional end-user installation support via email or phone.

Top Features edit


Default Desktop

openSUSE 11.2 includes KDE 4.3 as the “default” desktop. If you install from DVD without changing anything, you’ll have the KDE desktop by default. However, we still provide GNOME as an equal choice, and Xfce and other window managers as alternative desktops too!


Social networking

Social networking gets a boost in 11.2 with the addition of GNOME and KDE microblogging clients that handle multiple social network sites, Gwibber, and Choqok.



Want to manage remote openSUSE servers with a Web interface? That day is coming soon! openSUSE 11.2 users can install the first technology preview of WebYaST: a Web-based remote administration tool for openSUSE systems.
