Tested 10.3 beta1 and the related factory release in the past few days, but they are not worth for a separate announcement :-(
Some of the major problems:
- initrd generation is broken, so one needs to boot each time using the installer
- adding repositories does not work, so installing Opera, pine, xv, and other non OSS software is now a kind of difficult
On the other hand, package management feels to be a bit faster with reduced RAM requirements (but still needing a lot of swap space). So the problems are mainly related to installation and not to everyday usage. Most applications are bleeding edge, but still well integrated with the rest of the distribution providing the usual polished user experience from the SUSE team.
