Well a cable connection to the internet was crazy easy via YaST, but wireless still a no go. OpenSuse crashes when I try to reset and won't come back on from a prolonged sleep. I also found one annoying thing about Gnome 3, and that is the inability to minimize windows. Maybe I'm missing something, but it just doesn't seem to be there, and the real estate the applications (like Firefox) take up with their giant menus is a bit silly. I'll give it five days and try the newer version of OpenSuse. Until then maybe I'll toy with Linux Mint running Mate again.
I'm beginning to think Linux and Apple laptops were meant to play nice together.
