openSUSE 11.1 is out

I am in the process of downloading the latest release of openSUSE. I have been running release 11.0 for some time and openSUSE 11.1 is now out.

I am using the torrent method to get both the 32-bit and 64-bit DVDs. Both are over 4 gigabytes in size and transferring that much data is subject to errors in transmission. I have never had a problem if I have used torrents.

Unfortunately, I may not get the download completed before I leave for Panama City for the holidays, but I will have a new project to start of 2009.

  1. The torrent is a great way to get Linux distributions. Did you know that one could argue that using the torrents is not allowed under the Gnu General Public License v. 2? The Free Software Foundation couldn’t have imagined this distribution method when v. 2 was written, but it’s explicitly permitted in v. 3. (There’s your Linux / GPL trivia for the day ;-). )
