SUSE Phone, openSUSE Conference

Filed under
SUSE
  • Will openSUSE develop the SUSE Phone?

    I am currently in the process of interviewing the leaders of every Linux distribution on the planet, with the goal of helping us get to know the people behind the projects better. Having just wrapped up discussions with the heads of both elementary and Fedora (and others in the works) I decided it was time to talk about openSUSE.

    This gets a little tricky as, earlier this year, I was elected to a position on the openSUSE board. I thought, for a moment, about either skipping the openSUSE interview or having someone else conduct it – to avoid the perception of bias.

  • Update on openSUSE Conference

    There are 15 more days to submit a proposal for the openSUSE Conference in Nuremberg June 22 – 26, so I would like to provide an update to the community about the conference.

    As you might already be aware, there will be SaltStack, ownCloud, Kolab and SUSE Labs summits during the conference and we also plan on having a program for kids on Saturday, June 25.

Could Novell have become a Linux player?

SUSE

Ron Hovsepian took over as chief and presided over the infamous patent-licensing deal with Microsoft in November 2006 that made Novell a pariah in the open source community. That was the beginning of the end.

In 2010, Novell was bought by the Attachmate Group who, showing some wisdom, relocated SUSE back to Nuremberg to be run as an independent unit. Micro Focus became the owner of the Attachmate Group in late 2014 and SUSE continued to stay in Nuremberg.

SUSE, on its own, has about a third of the revenue that Red Hat does but with a parent like Novell it could well have been much more. When it was run from within Novell, SUSE was just about breaking even.

Could there have been another big Linux competitor to Red Hat? It's a pity that personality conflicts got in the way of us never knowing for certain.

4 Truths From Inside Open Source Marketing at SUSE

Filed under
OSS
SUSE

Being in marketing within a company focused on, and dedicated to, Open Source (and Free) software is an interesting thing; Open Source projects are not often associated with being particularly great at marketing and communication. The focus tends to be on the software being developed, with a mindset to let the quality of the software speak for itself. That doesn’t negate the need for great communication and marketing, though. (Even truly amazing software won’t have a lot of users if nobody knows it exists.)

SUSE has just made it a lot easier to upgrade the company’s OpenStack distribution, SUSE OpenStack Cloud 6 (SOC 6).

“If enterprise customers want to move to a new version of OpenStack they don’t have to replace and rebuild; they can now do a normal upgrade from an older version of OpenStack cloud to a newer version,” said SUSE CEO Nils Brauckmann. “What it means is that they can easily move with OpenStack innovation.”

  • Of gases, Qt, and Wayland

    Ever since the launch of Argon and Krypton, the openSUSE community KDE team didn’t really stand still: a number of changes (and potentially nice additions) have been brewing this week. This post recapitulates the most important one.

  • Argon and Krypton

    A recent announcement from openSUSE listed new live media (iso files) for Argon and Krypton. Argon is based on Leap 42.1, while Krypton is based on Tumbleweed.

    The openSUSE team maintains development repositories, in addition to the standard repos for the distributions. The development repos are where they build new or updated versions of the software for testing prior to adding that software to the standard repos. Both Argon and Krypton include some of these development repos.

  • openSUSE Tumbleweed – Review of the week 2016/8

    We’re back on a weekly report – after all, there were some snapshots now. But first, at this place, a big THANK YOU to SUSE for the new openQA worker machine. It’s a pleasure to watch it run through a full openQA run of a snapshot in just about three hours.
