openSUSE team has announced the availability of RC2 of openSUSE 13.1. The release is not meant for production machine and is instead targeted at testers.
As a user you may think why would you care about testing it? Why to waste time when you can get it when it’s finally released.
If you are an openSUSE user, this the the time for you to have a look at it and make sure that when the final release is out there is nothing that would break your system. In the open source world the only price we pay, the only cost a user can bear, is by helping out developers in improving the very product that we user.
As Linus Torvalds says, “Given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow.” So even if there are developers working on finding and fixing the bugs, additional eyeballs will make their work easier.
So, grab the RC2 from the link below and install it on your test machines. If you come across any issue, check out this page.
Note: If you are already on 13.1 RC1, then running zypper up will upgrade your system to the latest release. I am running on my production system and it’s working great.
