SUSE

Andreas Jaeger was recently appointed as product manager of SUSE so we talked to him about his new role, the relationship between SUSE and the openSUSE community and SUSE's emergence after being sold and much more.

Muktware: Can you tell us about the relationship between SUSE the company and openSUSE the community? How does SUSE coordinate with the openSUSE teams?

AJ: openSUSE is an Open Source project run by the people engaged in it and governed by the openSUSE board where the chairperson gets appointed by SUSE but everybody else is elected. Many of the people engaged in openSUSE are SUSE employees and SUSE is the primary sponsor of the project.

For the tested Kepler graphics cards that support re-clocking, I tested them at their maximum obtained re-clocked frequencies where the system was stable -- generally still below their rated core/memory frequencies.

Can the Linux-based Jolla Tablet take on Android and iOS?

The Jolla Tablet runs Sailfish OS. Oddly enough, Sailfish OS can apparently run Android applications too, which might make it more appealing to current Android tablet owners who want to switch to a different mobile operating system without entering the Apple ecosystem. Read more
