If I knew openSUSE I'd see a Linux desktop

Filed under
Linux

When I last wrote about openSUSE I was reacting to a few readers and what I saw as the buzz of the market.

So today I got the chance to chat with Greg Mancusi- Ungaro, director of marketing, Linux and open source for Novell. He could have taken me to the woodshed. Instead he answered my key question, what makes openSUSE different?

What makes it different, Mancusi-Ungaro said, is that it's focused on desktops. "We want to move the needle on Linux usage everywhere. We want to change how people get it. There’s a big barrier there, just getting it, if you’re a non-technical user.

"The openSUSE project is the only Linux distribution to go all the way to end user packaging, complete with documentation and end user support. You can pay a nominal fee at a store, with books, media and support you can install yourself. That doesn’t exist with other projects."
