openSUSE 10.3 Beta 1 Live CDs

Filed under
SUSE

Stephan Kulow has created and uploaded Live CDs of the 1-CD installations for your pleasure: GNOME Live ISO, KDE Live ISO. He writes: “Please put ‘live CD’ into the summary of bug reports, so we don’t confuse them with the installation CDs. The Live CDs are still very early in development, but we would like to hear your feedback in general.“

..."linux" for both root and normal user (also named "linux").

(Upon cursory inspection: The KDE version includes some games from KDE 4, although "kpat" doesn't run. Almost everything else is from KDE 3.5.7. It includes a few new - to me - things, like "Jarnal," a Java notetaking app, which didn't run; the "KDE Groupware Wizard;" and the "KDE Network Folder Wizard." A cosmetic bug: OpenOffice.org's splash screen is black. Fortunately, it includes the blue wallpaper from versions 10.1 and 10.2, so you don't have to stay with the "green dust mite" default.)

Or, imagine these license conditions are discovered late in the diligence process, and the cost to replace the offending third-party software will costs tens of thousands of dollars and take months to remediate. Both scenarios exemplify the acute, distinct and often overlooked risks inherent to the commercial use of open source software. An effective tech M&A attorney must appreciate these risks and be prepared to take the steps necessary to mitigate or eliminate them. Over the past decade, open source software has become a mainstay in the technology community. Since its beginnings, open source software has always been viewed as a way to save money and jumpstart development projects, but it is increasingly being looked to for its quality solutions and operational advantages. Today, only a fraction of technology companies do not use open source software in any way. For most of the rest, it is mission critical. Read more
