Have you tried OpenSUSE yet?

Written at: Draper, UT

OpenSUSE – project site at – is sponsored by Novell and “promotes the use of Linux everywhere”.

I guess for mere mortals that means on your laptop, home servers, development boxes – anywhere that matters! I know a few people who have given it to family and friends to cut down on the support and virus workload.
There are some interesting innovations coming out of the OpenSUSE community. Take a look at the OpenSUSE build service – demoed at BrainShare just a few weeks ago. Also look at the cutting edge in desktop and laptop usability – anyone who says Linux is a long way from ready for the desktop should seriously look at the massive leaps made in SUSE Linux 10.1 – currently in Beta 9.

And finally to the information that prompted me to write this post: OpenSUSE won the Best of Show award at LinuxWorld Expo last week in Boston – congratulations!
