linux.com: SUSE has been around almost since the dawn of consumer-level desktop Linux, and openSUSE 11 upholds the SUSE reputation for having not just a wide range of available applications, but also excellent documentation and a fine user-to-user support community. For this video we chose the KDE 4.x desktop option. KDE 3.5x and GNOME are also available as defaults in openSUSE.
superphysics.awardspace: I had said earlier that I was really going to put this one to the blade. Why? Because openSUSE 10.3 happens to be my favourite distro so far, and I was under the hope that this would be a good if not better. And I would test this with KDE 4, because that is the only real reason I would shift to 11.0 from 10.3.
opensuse.org: We now have founded an openSUSE Election Committee. The openSUSE election committee will organize and oversee the first openSUSE Board election, the board has authorized it to decide any open questions on the elections.
blogs.computerworld: Unlike a lot of open-source supporters, I don't turn red with anger at the very thought of Novell working with Microsoft.

linuxplanet.com: openSUSE 11.0 is based on the Linux kernel version 2.6.25 and provides a cornucopia of features. If you choose to download the full DVD, you can expect a whopping 4.5 GBs for the iso-format file. Other options include a Live CD and over the network.
opensource.org: Microsoft's silence on the topic of what they can do for Open Source has now been shattered by the news that they will follow none of the suggestions by any of the leaders in the open source community. Rather, they will spend another $100M on software they have no intention of ever actually using.
beranger.org: Red Hat makes publicly available to anyone, in free access (here), the complete source code for all the packages included in RHEL, including the sources for the commercially-available updates. Novell only makes publicly available to anyone, in free access (here and here), only the source code for the packages "as of release."
