Debian Celebrates 20 Years, OpenSUSE 8

Filed under
Linux
SUSE

Two distinguished distributions are celebrating birthdays this week. The openSUSE project celebrates 8 years of open Linux development and distribution. At the same time, Debian is gearing up for their birthday celebration at DebConf13 on August 16. Both projects provide invaluable and incalculable contributions to the Open Software sphere and the world economy.

Happy Eighth Birthday openSUSE!

The openSUSE project became official on August 9, 2005 inviting contributors to join their new open Linux distribution project. It wasn't long after the formation of the project before SUSE Linux 10.0 made its appearance on October 6, 2005 - slowing mirrors to a crawl worldwide. Before 10.3, the name of the free distribution was renamed to openSUSE.
