The XCache project is lead by mOo who is also a developer of Lighttpd. Lighttpd is one of the fastest web-server programs and outperforms Apache and many other open source web-serving projects so the same is being done to XCache.
If you're interested in some benchmarks of XCache, eAccelerator, APC, etc. then checkout the Five Opcode Cache Comparison on PHP on Fire.
OpenSuSe user can install XCache using "1-click" installer - here
After sucessfull installation check the entries in your /etc/php5/conf.d/xcache.ini configuration file to suite your web-server requirement.
