SUSE

SUSE Linux 10.0 is available for purchase and download in different flavors and some people are still spreading wrong information (initially started by some journalists).

This friday I went to the meeting of SUSE beta testers to the SUSE headquarters in Nuremberg. In a meeting room with all the other testers, we got a nice introduction to the openSUSE project, covering the past, the status quo as well as future plans.

One thing is for sure: SUSE guys don't only know how to make a cool distribution, they also know how to party!

Best release party ever!.
