53116821 story OpenSUSE 13.1 Released and Reviewed 113 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday November 19, 2013 @10:11PM from the onward-and-upward dept. sfcrazy writes "The openSUSE team just announced the release of openSUSE 13.1. There are some core points which set openSUSE apart from the popular Ubuntu distro. While Ubuntu has become a more or less Canonical-owned project, openSUSE is becoming more and more community-driven. Looking at the recent controversies around Ubuntu and their move toward mobile platforms, openSUSE seems to be a great option for desktop users."
