SUSE 10 -- where's the dot-one?

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

I thought Novell was going to "get it right" with their new OpenSUSE 10 version, and become a serious contender to Red Hat in the small business community, who can't afford the "real thing" called "Novell Linux." (As I understand it, the entire Novell business model is still up in the air as to how OpenSUSE.org is going to fit into the great scheme of things.) And I still think Novell has that ability, but this version of SUSE, even though it went through a number of release candidates, feels like it was rushed out by the development team.

This is the first effort in "openness" from Novell, and it's a good one, all in all. But this is a dot-zero release, and it looks and acts like one in many respects. I'm looking forward to the dot-one version, where I hope the "fit and finish" is done to a higher standard.

Full Review.
