SUSE

Fresh after the version 10.1 release of its OpenSuSE Linux operating system, Novell users hosted an installfest in Sydney this week where a number of enterprises fired up the penguin for the first time.

Organized by the Sydney Novell Users Group (SNUG), the installfest attracted about 30 people, from end users to IT managers representing a variety of organizations including the National Australia Bank, the University of Technology, Sydney, the NSW Department of Commerce, Railcorp, Canterbury City Council, Sydney Adventist Hospital, TAFE NSW, and the World Wide Fund for Nature.

SNUG president David Hayes said attendees were keen to get a hold of SuSE Linux and try it, because it now provides a "much better working model than earlier releases".
