Linux Lately: openSUSE 12.3, New Distro, OpenMandriva
With Ubuntu sucking all the air lately, other distributions can't seem to get mentioned. Well, we can't have that when openSUSE 12.3 is just days away from public release and Jos Poortvliet offers a bit of a peak. Matthias Klumpp is proposing a new distribution and the voting has begun in OpenMandriva's Get a Face contest.
openSUSE 12.3 went Gold Master today and is scheduled for wide public release next week, March 13. To that end, Jos Poortvliet, openSUSE Community manager, posted a sneak peek of the upcoming desktops. Those include "GNOME Shell, KDE Plasma, Xfce, LXDE and the brand new E17."
