SUSE – “Will not diverge from its Open Source roots!”

When asked to peer into his crystal ball and tell us what he thought was the next wave of innovation, Mr. Miller did not hesitate. “With software defined distributed storage, we are on the cusp of a new revolution,” he stated. IoT and other technologies are bringing “more data and larger data sets kept for longer periods of time. This massive explosion of data really requires a storage revolution. This is our opportunity to bring the power of open source innovation to bear on storage.” Stay tuned for more.

Hands-on: Installing openSuSE Tumbleweed on my new Acer Aspire V3-331

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

One thing that particularly interested me was the screen size - at 13.3" it is larger than my usual netbooks (10"-11"), but still smaller than the 15" screen on my Asus which doesn't fit very well in my backpack. I'm hoping this will be a good replacement for the Aspire E11 that I got nearly a year ago, with a bit more comfortable screen and a wi-fi adapter that isn't as much of a pain as the E11's Broadcom.

openSUSE Gymnastics: Leaping and Tumbling

Filed under
Reviews
SUSE

openSUSE announced the second milestone for the Leap 42.1 developmental cycle so I decided to give her a test run. I wasn't the only one putting openSUSE through its paces this weekend though. Jamie Watson tested a recent Tumbleweed snapshot on yet another new Acer netbook and Neil Rickert tested both.

As my search for a Mint replacement continues, openSUSE Leap 42.1 reached Milestone 2 and thought I'd give it a whirl. I downloaded the install DVD and designated a pre-used partition for the install and formatted with ext4. I didn't test any of the higher functions like encryption or LVM, and left the default KDE desktop as my choice. I didn't bother selecting packages and just installed the default selections. That was 4 gigs. I had it put the boot files on both the MBR and the install partition and it didn't balk. This is the first time in a long time I have a pretty Bootloader screen. It identified and listed all my Linux installs, even those I wish it wouldn't.

Exclusive Interview: Michael Miller of SUSE Talks About Transition and Contributing to Open Source

Filed under
Interviews
SUSE

SUSE is one of the Linux trinity -- which comprises Red Hat, SUSE, and Canonical. SUSE is also one of the leading contributors to many open source projects, including the kernel itself. However, the company went through challenging times as it was acquired by one company after another. It seems that things have stabilized with the Micro Focus acquisition, so I sat down with Michael Miller, SUSE’s Vice President of Global Alliances & Marketing at LinuxCon and talked about topics ranging from acquisition to future plans.

Ubuntu tablet and smartphone: a personal "mini" review

So when Ubuntu and Canonical revealed they were partnering with actual, big manufacturers for Ubuntu mobile devices, a spark of hope was rekindled in my heart. Let it be clear, I am by no means an Ubuntu user, not even a fan. I left the fold nearly a decade ago, after having spent quite some time using and contributing to Kubuntu (to the point of becoming a certified “member” even, though I never ascended to the Council). In terms of loyalties and usage, I am a KDE user (and “helper”) foremost. I use Fedora because it just works for me, for now. So, yes, an Ubuntu Touch device would be another compromise for me, but it would be the smallest one. Or so I hoped. Read more
