When you're done installing OpenSUSE 10.0, your desktop system is not complete.

You may also want to add support for playing DVD videos on your computer. Here's how.
The long awaited SUSE Linux 10.0 was finally released Thursday, October 6 as planned and listed in the roadmap. I don't know how many downloads they've clocked as of yet, but within minutes of the story breaking the OpenSUSE site and it's download mirrors had slowed to a crawl. There is a lot of interest in this release as evidenced by the large number of reads of my articles during the development cycle. The whole world was excited as I by Novell's decision to provide a free very close sibling to their enterprise product under the gpl and organizing a team to develop it. Up until that point SUSE interested me about as much as going to the dentist. They have my attention now!
A release candidate of Ark Linux 2005.2 has been released, featuring KDE 3.5 Beta 1. The Ark Linux team are planning to release 2005.2 final at the same time as KDE 3.5 is released.
Details of Novell's migration have been sketchy, but in a public presentation to attendees of Ohio LinuxFest, company specialists gave a rare look inside the ongoing move to Linux and laid out one possible framework for other companies to follow in their own migration plans.

Oct 6th: SUSE Linux 10.0 OSS GM has been released. The OpenSuSE site is slowing down already under a slashdot effect as the masses flock to get directions to download mirrors.
This is a gentoo user's answer to Mr. Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo. If you missed the story on OSNews on the Slacker Tries His Hand at Gentoo, you really must read it. It's a hilarios account of an experienced linux user's first try at gettting a Gentoo system all set up for work or play. At first I was gonna make a cute witty comment to the story and be on my way, but instead it turned into an article. I guess as I read his story I found I had something to say at about every experience he shared.
Penguinistas tend to love Star Trek and Star Wars. Maybe it's the love of the idea of endless possibilities that runs as a common theme through both free open source software and those movies.
