OpenSUSE 11.1 includes some of the latest innovations from the open-source community and other projects in the openSUSE Project.

GNOME users now are able to accomplish more in a more powerful Nautilus file manager, which now features tabs to keep the desktop tidier. Managing and editing photos with F-Spot is now easier, with editing tools featured prominently with your photos. Keep in touch with your friends and colleagues with Pidgin, the IM client, and Ekiga, a new VoIP client which features great support for video chat. The Totem movie player is now able to watch YouTube videos, with support for searching built right in, or you can watch digital television with Totem & GNOME’s enhanced support for DVB.
KDE users can now experience the power and innovation of KDE 4.1 built right in to openSUSE 11.1. openSUSE features the latest features from the KDE desktop. On top of that openSUSE has added the most requested and missed features like cube desktop effects, auto-hiding panel and ability to run Folder View plasmoid as desktop. Users who prefer the legacy KDE 3.5 experience have the option to install that instead of 4.1 if they so choose.
Getting Work Done:

But when you need to put away those fun apps and get some work done, openSUSE 11.1 has you covered with OpenOffice 3.0 Novell Edition, the newest version of the popular office suite. Included are a word processor, presentation creator, spreadsheet creator, and more. Some of the new things in OpenOffice 3.0 includes spreadsheet collaboration, the ability to edit multiple pages in the word processor, and improved notes in the word processor. With openSUSE, OpenOffice is able to read and write all Microsoft Office files, including those made by Office 2007.

Another new app is Tasque. With Tasque, you can easily add and manage your to-do list, and look good while doing it. In addition, Tasque can synchronize with Remember the Milk, a popular online to-do manager, or Evolution’s task list, so no matter where you are or what you use, moving to and using Tasque is an easy procedure.

There are over 200 new features in openSUSE 11.1, and that’s only including features that are unique to us! For an overview what’s in and which version please check the
