matt asay: Brent Marinaccio of HotLinuxJobs confirms that Novell is in the midst of layoffs. I heard the same thing yesterday from other sources. Hopefully the people affected will be able to find good jobs elsewhere.
This tutorial shows how you can set up an OpenSUSE 10.3 desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the things they do on their Windows desktops.
sunnytalkstech.blogspot: 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 4th Oct, 2007. A lot has improved over the years and I've seen how SuSE has improved with every new version.
