Suse Linux 10.0 to hit stores in early October

Filed under
SUSE

Novell on Wednesday announced its Suse Linux 10.0 operating system will be generally available early next month in retail or online stores. The new software emphasizes ease of use and is aimed at both developers and home users, according to the company.

Suse Linux 10.0 is the first fruit of the openSuse project, a community program backed by Novell and designed to evangelize its distribution of Linux. Novell unveiled its openSuse project at the LinuxWorld show in San Francisco last month when the company released the first public beta of Suse Linux 10.0. Suse Linux was previously known as Suse Linux Professional.

The new operating system incorporates feedback from developers garnered since the first public beta was released on Aug. 9. A first version of the build server version of openSuse is due to appear early next year, according to a roadmap on the project's Web site (www.opensuse.org). Novell plans to begin regularly releasing alpha snapshots -- first looks at very early versions -- of Suse Linux 10.1 from Sept. 28, the roadmap states.

The state of Linux gaming in the SteamOS era

For decades after Linux's early '90s debut, even the hardest of hardcore boosters for the open source operating system had to admit that it couldn't really compete in one important area of software: gaming. "Back in around 2010 you only had two choices for gaming on Linux," Che Dean, editor of Linux gaming news site Rootgamer recalls.
