junauza.com: All things are set for today’s epic battle. Two major release versions of two major Linux distributions will take the stage for what could be the fight of the year. Dubbed as the Battle Royale, it’s Ubuntu 8.04 vs. openSUSE 11 for our mega main event.
metaverse.wordpress: As you probably know already, openSUSE 11.0 is out. There seems to be a lot of misconceptions regarding the inclusion of KDE4 in openSUSE 11.0 that are leading to a great deal of anger on the mailing list.
Matt Asay: Of some significance this past week, Jefferies raised its rating on Novell to a "Buy," arguing that the Linux and Identity Management vendor's revenue stream is "as stable as you can get during a recession." Perhaps this is why a Novell director bought 10,000 more shares of stock?
lizards.opensuse: In order to give an answer about “Why this package will be installed and who needs it?” I have added a new Dialog in the QT single package selector. Select one item (pattern, package) in the single selection frame and the result will be shown with this dialog.
blogs.zdnet.com: Not a single post I make about Ubuntu goes by without at least one of you making some comment about my distro of choice and suggesting that I try some other distro. Well, never let it be said that I don’t listen to you - so this week I decided to take openSUSE 11.0 for a spin.
itwire.com: Sometime back, I had a couple of encounters with OpenSUSE, the so-called community distribution which was started by Novell in 2005. Neither of them was exactly salutary. With version 11, there is somewhat better news. Or maybe I should I say mixed news.

Last fall when the two mega-distros openSUSE and Mandriva both hit the mirrors, it was difficult to decide which I liked better. In an attempt to narrow it down, I ran some light-hearted tests and found Mandriva won out in a side-by-side comparison. But things change rapidly in the Linux world and I wondered how a competition of the newest releases would come out. Mandriva 2008.1 was released this past April and openSUSE 11.0 was released just last week.
