Novell will be merging 3 forum sites (suseforums.net, suselinuxsupport.de and the openSUSE support forums at forums.novell.com) to a new official openSUSE Forums at forums.opensuse.org. This will give openSUSE users a one-stop shop for their problems and ideas.
It's almost time for another openSUSE release, and i'm sure there will be many articles written about it in the near future. openSUSE 11.1 plans to bring a whole bunch of new features to the desktop. But what about the company behind the SUSE logo? Novell get a lot of bad press, but do they really deserve it?
As part of a Novell Open Audio series on openSUSE, they will be interviewing various openSUSE developers to find out more about the project, particular involvements and new technologies in the distribution. Today’s interview features a talk with Martin Lasarsch, an openSUSE evangelist.
A few weeks ago, the OpenSUSE Project announced the release of OpenSUSE 11.0, the "community" edition of SUSE Linux, Novell's commercial Linux distribution. Like most recent distributions, OpenSUSE is made up of the usual suspects, including GNOME and KDE-based desktops, Live CD and full DVD installation options, and an online repository of software that can be installed using a GUI tool.
The issue of how long a Linux distribution will support a release is one that tends to go back and forth. Novell's openSUSE Linux is now revising its policy. Starting with the openSUSE 11.2, maintenance support will be approximately 18 months which is reduction of 6 months from what openSUSE 11.1 and prior offered users.
