WOW does this guy know his stuff...

JDS isn't based on a particular version of SuSE. Have you ever tried installing gnome on any version of SuSE? Hardly much support for gnome in SUSE. I have used JDS for months, it works better than most.

Look at the rpm's and you'll see they're snapshots of "no particular version".

The plumbing of JDS is primarily based on Yast2 but it's built with an earlier glibc (2.25). SuSE uses glibc 2.3. Not 'old' by any measure.

It's a very customized Linux distro.

You would think the 'reviewer' would have at least looked into what he was reviewing.
