People of openSUSE: Andreas Jaeger

SUSE

Today we present the interview with Andreas Jaeger, Director Platform/openSUSE and also the very first person who came up with the idea to launch the project ‘People of openSUSE’.

When and why did you start using openSUSE/SUSE Linux?
I started to use a first distribution from S.u.S.E. in 1994 - and then updated my system by hand. In 1999 when I started to work for SuSE, I put a new version on my system and have since then been using it.

When did you join the openSUSE community and what made you do that?
I did join the openSUSE community on the day the openSUSE project was founded since I’ve been involved with the project to launch openSUSE - I was responsible for the SUSE Linux distribution as project manager and that one is a major part of openSUSE. I’ve been asked to do it, but did it happily because I thought it’s time to open up our development.

In what way do you participate in the openSUSE project?

Ubuntu-Based ExTiX OS Updated for Intel Compute Sticks with Improved Installer

GNU/Linux developer Arne Exton announced this past weekend the release of an updated build of his Ubuntu-based ExTiX Linux distribution for Intel Compute Stick devices. Last month, we reported on the initial availability of a port of the ExTiX operating system for Intel Compute Sticks, boasting the lightweight and modern LXQt 0.10.0 desktop environment and powered by the latest Linux 4.8 kernel, tweaked by Arne Exton for Intel Atom processors. And now, ExTiX Build 161203 is out as a drop-in replacement for Build 161119, bringing a much-improved Ubiquity graphics installer that should no longer crash, as several users who attempted to install the Ubuntu-based GNU/Linux distro on their Intel Compute Stick devices reported.
