Coffee talk with Michael Miller

Filed under
Interviews
SUSE

Friday 16.09, while working on the openSUSE 12.1 marketing actions during the Marketing Hackfest, two of us had the spontaneous idea to suggest an interview to Michael Miller(Vice President of Global Alliances & Marketing for SUSE), asking him a few questions we could have in the openSUSE community.

1. Can you remember what were your impressions, when you first installed openSUSE ? What did you find easy and what was difficult?

Michael Miller: let me think about that. I wasn’t used to YaST, so I didn’t know that everything was right there.
In fact, I was using KDE for many many years before. When I went to the first install of openSUSE, I tried GNOME , instead. I just wanted to try something different. I found the install really simple and quick.

I started looking for the things I wanted to install, and I liked the repositories, factory and things were very easy to find, and I was able to get everything that I needed. Then I liked the package manager, zypper, which I mostly use in a shell, so I get all installation details.

Rest here
