Suse Linux 10.0 to hit stores in early October

Filed under
SUSE

Novell on Wednesday announced its Suse Linux 10.0 operating system will be generally available early next month in retail or online stores. The new software emphasizes ease of use and is aimed at both developers and home users, according to the company.

Suse Linux 10.0 is the first fruit of the openSuse project, a community program backed by Novell and designed to evangelize its distribution of Linux. Novell unveiled its openSuse project at the LinuxWorld show in San Francisco last month when the company released the first public beta of Suse Linux 10.0. Suse Linux was previously known as Suse Linux Professional.

The new operating system incorporates feedback from developers garnered since the first public beta was released on Aug. 9. A first version of the build server version of openSuse is due to appear early next year, according to a roadmap on the project's Web site (www.opensuse.org). Novell plans to begin regularly releasing alpha snapshots -- first looks at very early versions -- of Suse Linux 10.1 from Sept. 28, the roadmap states.

First peek at the next Ubuntu 15.04 nester line-up

Ubuntu 15.04 is here – almost. The first beta of Vivid Vervet has been delivered, and with it have come images of the penguin flock that nestles on this OS. I looked at Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Ubuntu GNOME and Ubuntu MATE but there’s also Lubuntu and the China-centric Ubuntu Kylin, which I didn’t test. These are beta releases and should be considered for testing purposes only, but the advantage of these early versions is that features have been frozen and you can get an early glimpse of what's coming for each of the popular flavours in the 15.04 foundation. From this point on, the only changes will be bug fixes. Read more
