You're quite right, Rhakios, and this is what I've now done on my experimental desktop setup. Much better font rendering now. For microsoft core fonts, I've installed them on my laptop also the old-fashioned way. I think it's going to take some time for the repositories to get up to speed with 10.1. Packman is still offering an update to K3B without the needed dependencies, and there's a lot of very unhappy bunnies on Suse forums and on the SuSE section of LinuxQuestions. (Ho ho ho. )
10.1 is running nicely on my laptop now; wireless with the Intel 2200 works even better than in 10.0. It looks good too (Intel 915G graphics), now I've got Gnome back to how it should be. I haven't enabled any extra repositories on the laptop for the time being. I'll wait until the dust settles before fixing the multimedia stuff. And I won't even think of installing 10.1 on my main AMD64 desktop for a good while yet.
