openSUSE 13.2 GNOME, a quick look
openSUSE 13.2 was released yesterday. I downloaded and installed the same using the openSUSE GNOME Live CD. The first thing that caught my attention was Btrfs proposed for root and XFS for /home; though I didn't explore Btrfs further.
Fonts are now smooth thanks to hinting & anti-aliasing set by default. Usually, this was what I'd do right after installation.
Flash player was installed with the first
zypper up. Devanagri fonts are supported by default & this time fonts are well aligned in Google Chrome. I still find it weird that Google Chrome tends to break Hindi texts in other distributions, including Windows.
VideoLAN already has VLC repository for openSUSE 13.2. Adding the repo & installing VLC Media Player is straight-forward.
