OpenSUSE Corrals Community Software Efforts

By eWEEK Labs  |  Posted 2009-12-28 Email

eWEEK Labs' Jason Brooks and Andrew Garcia discuss Novell's latest community-oriented Linux OS, OpenSUSE 11.2, which is packed with official OpenSUSE versions of the latest and greatest of what the open-source software world has to offer. Where OpenSUSE 11.2 sets itself apart from its Linux rivals is its focus on highlighting community software contributions alongside the official distribution-provided packages. This community software focus, combined with the long time "power user" orientation of SUSE distributions, makes OpenSUSE 11.2 a very configurable--but potentially confusing--Linux-based operating system option.
