From the kernel to the desktop, openSUSE 12.2 brings you speed-ups: Linux 3.4
has a faster storage layer to prevent blocking during large transfers. glibc 2.15, the basic library, improves the performance of many functions especially on 64 bit systems. Systemd
44 enables faster booting. And KDE’s
4.8.4 releases build on Qt 4.8.1 to make the desktop and applications more responsive.
