Moving from Vista to Suse 10.1

With my laptop failing and having to send it back to Dell for repair it seemed an ideal opportunity to try out the latest beta of Vista (beta 2). Unfortuneatelty my graphics card (Mobility Radeon 7500) didn't let me use Aero and I had quite a few problems with beta 2:
  • Mouse clicks sometimes not registered on desktop (same with default detected device and downloaded synaptics driver)
  • Some 700MB out of 1GB of memory in use when just on desktop (!)
  • Slow response
So, I decided to move back to Suse only this time I will try 10.1 with XGL so watch this space! I know XGL will work because I tried the Kororaa XGL Live CD v0.2.
