SUSE

‘People of openSUSE’ caught up the man behind the great effort done on the German openSUSE wiki - Matthias Fehring. He is one of the system operatores of the de.opensuse.org wiki and long time openSUSE user.

When and why did you start using openSUSE/SUSE Linux?

My first contact to Linux and SUSE Linux was SUSE Linux 6.2 which I bought together with a friend. The motivation was the old “Windows annoyances”…. But this motivation did not lead quickly to a big love. So the most time the box collected dust in the rack. But at times the boredom hit me and I installed it many times new. It was more a game to install it, then really usage. But with SUSE Linux 7.0 I started to use it regularly and after some time I used Windows only for playing games. In the meantime I tried also Ubuntu, Gentoo and CCux Linux, but went always back to SUSE Linux. By the way: Two month ago, my mother found the old SL 6.2 box on the attic. I am not nostalgic and throw it away… Wink

Peppermint 7 Released

Peppermint 7 launched a few days ago. Peppermint is a lightweight Ubuntu-based Linux distribution with an emphasis on speed and simplicity. Although the name is similar to Linux Mint, the projects aren't directly related. Peppermint originally was envisioned as a "spicier" alternative to Mint—whatever that means! Many distros come with a wide assortment of feature-rich applications, and that's great for power users who need those apps. But older machines can struggle to cope with those demanding distros. Peppermint solves the problem by offering a carefully curated suite of web apps that perform tasks traditionally handled by native apps. It's an approach that will be familiar to any Chromebook users reading this article. Read more
