The interface here on G+ is so much better than Facebook. The conversation is more intelligent, and the content is better. Wish more people used it.

Just installed 13.1 32 bit... Been using Ubuntu and all its forks.. But fairly a noob to OpenSuse... So what now? I'm normally just browsing the web, but what should I do on here to learn the differences between OpenSuse and Ubuntu?

Read this, it will help a lot:
The major difference betwene openSUSE and Ubuntu is that we try to keep our desktop as vanilla and unpatched as we can. Ubuntu does the opposite. We use GNOME's and KDE's own upgrade and update utlities but we also offer our own through YaST. PPAs don't exist but instead we have OBS repositories. You can search for packages on
You can install software via Apper, YaST, Zypper (command line), or gnome-software.

Just smoked my first pipe this weekend.. Went to a local cigar shop (being smoking cigars for years) and started with a corn cob pipe. It was my birthday, so the guy gave me a small bag of a medium blended mix tobacco, and a tamper.. So far, so good.

Devil's Backbone Vienna Lager. Out of central Virginia. Look it up. It's won awards. Ridiculously good.

Long read, but worth it... Just this week, I had 2 customers come in with XP machines they just bought used... Businesses are more at risk, but everyone using XP needs to upgrade.
Summary: Even though the world won't end because of Microsoft's withdrawal of support for Windows XP, those left clinging to the OS after April's deadline still face a number of issues.

I've never used Damn Small Linux. 2006 Hardware is easy to put Linux on, and GIMP should be in most of the repositories/software centers.

Done a little of everything in life. I have a wife and 2 girls. I've gone from working retail to working in higher education, and back to managing retail. I have a master's degree in Organizational Management and Leadership. I'm a Christian. I love guitars, computers, social networking, and a bunch of other stuff that I don't have much time for.
