SuSE Linux 10 Downloads Hard To Get

Filed under
SUSE

A boxed copy of Linux 10 retails for $60, but the distribution can be downloaded for free in images suitable for transferring to one DVD or five CDs. The single available mirror site, however, didn't respond to several requests by TechWeb; the same held true for downloads from the openSuSE.org site.

Users equipped with a BitTorrent client may have success downloading Linux 10.

The openSuSE.org site warned that it may take several days for the downloading kinks to work out.

Sad News! ;-)

So, XP is dead, “7” is dying, “8” is a zombie, and “10” is vapourware with nowhere to call home. M$ continues layoffs. POOF! It all falls down. In the meantime Google and the OEMs will crank out many millions of ChromeBooks. Canonical, Linpus, RedHat, Suse… and the OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux PCs. Several OEMs will crank out many millions of GNU/Linux thin clients. Android/Linux will reverberate with another billion or so units of small cheap computers(tablets, smartphones). This looks like good news to me. Read more
