    What is Yoper?

    Yoper is a high performance operating system which has been carefully optimised for PC's with either 686 or higher processor types. The binaries that come with Yoper have been built from scratch using the original sources combined with the best features of from the major distros. However, Yoper is not like the general purpose distros such as Redhat or Mandrake. It is a high performance desktop OS. It is compact. In fact, Yoper is one of the most standardised Linuxes that you will find and hardware performancetries to be better better than that of any commercial OS.

    Yoper fills the gap between the guru-only Gentoo or Linux from scratch OS's, and Linux distros used by businesses or home users, that still want the best possible desktop. For businesses the Yoper team can adapt yoper for your organization so that you get exactly what you want.

    Yoper - Ranks right up there with Debian

    Yoper Linux (Currently Version 2.1.0) is one of the best distros I have used. I am actually using it right now. It is great for people with pretty good equipment and great for those with nVidia graphics cards as it will automatically install the nVidia driver for you. You may have to do some tweaking to get everything to your liking as it's not one of the huge distros with tons of people working on it. It is fast however and In my book it ranks right up there with Debian which has been my distro of choice for quite a while. I hope more people will just give yoper a chance. It really is worth a look. Don't let any of their old releases scare you either. I had terrible luck with the 1.x versions but thay have done tremendous work with 2.1. Give it a try. If you don't like it you've lost nothing...it's completely free. I'm glad I tried it. One more thing, Yoper doesn't really install a bunch of stuff you don't need or want at install. It gives you a good base and lets you use Synaptic (APT) to pick up whatever you want. Also, Yoper's APT works with RPM and Deb packages which is great. Anyway, keep an open mind and give it a try. Don't let the install turn you off. The install still needs some work. The final product is worth the effort.

    For me, I never thought anything would be a contender for Debian Sid. Sid is fresh, and many other distro's just arent. Sid is fast. Again, not so for others, especially on my old 500MHz celeron.

    I heard elsewhere in these forums about Yoper. I downloaded it last night, and installed it this morning, just for laughs on my "testing" HDD. It runs great. It's the fastest thing I've ever tried. Not to mention, KDE 3.3 is gorgeous. The installer isn't perfect. Cfdisk partitioned my drive just fine, but Yoper didn't see that it was partitioned right. (I have an oddball monitor, and GUI installers never work for me on ANY distro.) Once I found the trick to getting it to work, it installed in the 15 minutes that it was said to install in. Configuration was a snap, too.

    I second that vote: Give Yoper at least a chance. You may have found a new love, if you do.....

    I would agree. My linux box at the moment is a celeron 634mhz and its the fastest thing I ever used. Yes kde 3.3 is gorgeous

    I'm only having some trouble with apt at the moment we can fix that.
