SUSE

linux.com: openSUSE is one of the most popular free-software-only distributions, and it's jointly developed by Novell and members of the community. In the first week of November the openSUSE developers released installable live versions of the distro's latest 10.3 release, one each for KDE and GNOME desktop environments.

perkypants.org: As a result of some confusion (and sadly, some very active, ugly and offensive muck-raking) in various sections of the community recently, I thought it might be interesting to do a review of GNOME’s relationship with Novell and some of the people involved in that relationship.

mandrake.tips.4.free.fr: It's been quite a while since my last SUSE Linux installation (here's my review about that), but a bit shorter since my last contact with SUSE Linux... the (Core 2 Duo 64 bit Intel GMA950 ipw3945) laptop I'm writing this on is a Novell Certified machine that I bought about a year ago preinstalled with Novell SLED (instead of MS Windows).

sys-con.com: For the last 10+ yrs, I have spent quite a lot of my PC experience on SuSE beginning with v4.2. openSUSE 10.3 was released October 4 2007. A lot has improved over the years and I've seen how it has improved with every new version.

Ubuntu
-s

I was glancing through the top searches for my site and noticed one string I thought I'd try to answer it. That search was openSUSE vs Ubuntu.

By contrast the ARM Cortex-M is a microcontroller level chip which might run at 16-100Mhz, contain 2-100kb of RAM, and some flash memory to contain only the program that you want to execute. Read more
