SuSE Linux opening up



I just read at arstechnica that it looks as though Novell is going to try and develop a community around SuSE, much like Red Hat has done with Fedora. They’ll be opening up the code at opensuse.org. The goal will be to make it easier for people to get involved with releasing software for SuSE and they think community involvement will help bugs to be resolved quicker. I like the sound of what they’re trying. I tried a livecd of SuSE several years back,


about the time I settled on Mandrake. The only thing that really bothered me about SuSE was that the LiveCD was from a previous version. (Current edition livecd was not available for free.) One of the things that I’ve enjoyed about Mandrake/ Mandriva is that it’s possible to take part in the testing process and file bug reports and even feature suggestions without being an employee or without having any special status.

Good move Novell.
