Will Suse 10's cool looks be enough to win hearts?

Filed under
SUSE

It has a clean and has immaculate look about it with enough eye-candy to make it a hit with both Linux enthusiasts good desktop design fans. But does the forthcoming vesion 10 of Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop (previously called Novell Linux Desktop) really have what it takes to make the real inroads into the desktop OS sector Novell so badly needs to make?

Although still in beta form and scheduled to only be released sometime after mid-year 2006, Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED 10) has had a substantial interface overhaul, and a very attractive one at that. Novell SA's Alison Singh says the various enhancements to the desktop have been the result of two years of working with users to find a better way for them to interact with the operating system. The result is an attratively redesigned desktop with a familiar Gnome feel and a few menu enhancements that will seemingly add a lot of functionality without losing too much of the familiarity of the 'Start' menu most users are used to.

  • Wine-Staging 1.9.9 Shipped Some Patches To Mainline, Cleaned Up Other Code
    Wine Staging, a playground for experimental Wine patches not yet ready to be accepted to the mainline tree, is out with their newest release that's powered off last week's official Wine 1.9.9 release. Over the past two weeks, Wine-Staging developers spent time cleaning up some of the patches they were carrying in and got them merged to mainline. For v1.9.9, they were able to mainline more than thirty of their patches that they'll no longer need to carry in this experimental tree. They also dropped their libcef system call workaround for Steam now that there's a command-line switch to workaround the CEF sandboxing.
