OpenSUSE Starts Steering its Own Course
,----[ Quote ]
| It's not easy for a Linux company to let go the reins of control over its
| community Linux distribution. Just ask Red Hat, which started to let go of
| Fedora and then decided to keep managing it (Red Hat keeps its grip on
| Fedora). But, now Novell is loosening its apron strings on its community
| Linux openSUSE.
| Novell is pleased by these first steps. Joe 'Zonker' Brockmeier, the openSUSE
| Community Manager, said "I think this is an important milestone for the
| project. As you know, the previous board was handpicked by Novell -- and I
| think that the company made good choices for the "bootstrap" board, but it's
| necessary for the project to elect its own members for the community to
| really feel like it's being well-represented."
openSUSE 11.0; KDE 4.1 Improvements
,----[ Quote ]
| So far I’ve been really impressed with the latest release. Not only have the
| reviews been pretty much consistently positive because of some of the shiny
| new features (like installer and fast package management), but also in
| general it’s just running very well. I installed it on some 10 different
| desktop and laptop machines over the past few weeks, and every single one has
| gone very smoothly.
