SUSE Linux is installed more than 7,000 times every day, an average of one installation every 12 seconds. The openSUSE™ project features easy access to builds and releases, and will soon offer new resources and programs for open access to the development process used to create SUSE Linux, the award-winning distribution that contains everything users need to get started with Linux®. Developers have contributed thousands of suggestions, bug fixes and provided significant input which will improve Novell's leading Linux distribution for developers and customers around the globe.

In other Novell/Suse news:

Novell plans to release early this year a public development framework and server build for openSUSE.

The framework will give third party ISVs and open source developers new resources and tools -- including code libraries and a public build server -- to streamline code and patch contributions to SUSE Linux, Novell said.

The framework will also enable developers to create packages and applications that run on Novell SUSE Linux or SUSE Linux-based distributions, the Waltham, Mass., company said.
