Novell to deliver SUSE desktop a little late

Filed under
SUSE

Three months ago, we had a chat with Novell Linux evangelist Andreas Girardet who waxed lyrical about his company's desktop product SUSE Linux Enterprise (SLED) version 10. This was to be the Windows killer, the desktop Linux to end all desktop Linux products, the one that would make 2006 the year of the Linux desktop. However, we were expecting it by the end of June and it seems to be a little late.

It’s not “Xgl”…it’s “Desktop Effects”

Filed under
SUSE
HowTos

I have found that many Xgl-knowledgeable people are having trouble setting up Desktop Effects because they try to do the same setup as they used on early SLED10 betas and on SUSE Linux 10.1 (or Ubuntu, or Gentoo, or…) Ironic that people are messing up because they’re too experienced, methinks. They go about it the hard way.

SUSE Linux Enterprise 10rc3

-s

As I'm sure you read, Novell offered a test drive of SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 release candidate 3 (announcement). As my interest in all things SUSE never wanes, I downloaded the 5 cds right away. They came in rather quickly, although I overlooked the md5sum file. Upon returning today for said file, it appears they've begun to require registration to download the preview. I'm not sure why they now want this information, but I suspect they see these testers as possible future customers. They didn't lose out on me as I have no intention of buying. Not that it's not worth it to the right people, I'd just go for the opensuse version myself. However, to the new office setup or businesses wanting to change, SUSE Linux Enterprise 10 may be just what the IT doctor ordered.
