zonker.opensuse: Retail box? What’s up with that, right? We’re all about the free downloads over here, right? Yes, but… there’s a method to the madness of offering a retail box as well.
opensuse.org: I’m glad to announce the beginning of the Sneak Peaks at openSUSE 11.0 series! Over the next few weeks we will be taking a look at all of the exciting changes and improvements in openSUSE 11.0, with each article being followed by an interview with a developer in the field.
Matt Asay: Ed Moltzen writes headlines an article with "Microsoft's Coupon Money Boosts Novell's Linux Numbers," which is true on its face, but not as interesting under the covers. Justin Steinman, Novell's head of Linux marketing, had told me a week ago
opensuse.org: Issue #25 of openSUSE Weekly News is now out. In this week’s issue: People of openSUSE: Matthias Fehring, Interview: KDevelop and the openSUSE Build Service, and blogs.zdnet.com: “OpenSUSE 11 RC1: The Mercedes-Benz to Ubuntu’s Volkswagen.”
beranger.org: OK, it's about a Beta/Prerelease. Still, it's open source and governed by GPL or by more permissive licenses. And what is openSUSE 11.0b3 EULA saying? (Was it written by Microsoft, or what?)

blogs.zdnet.com: 2008 will be a very good vintage for community end-user Linux distributions. I must admit, however, to having a particularly strong interest in OpenSUSE, Novell’s entry into the community Linux distro fray.

opensuse.org: ‘People of openSUSE’ caught up the man behind the great effort done on the German openSUSE wiki - Matthias Fehring. He is one of the system operatores of the de.opensuse.org wiki and long time openSUSE user.
LinuxToday: I read the Boycott Novell (BN) site fairly regularly, even if I don't always agree with what it has to say. I consider Roy Schestowitz, one of the site's creators, a good guy and (thus far) we have had a very cordial relationship. But the tone of the BN site is almost always in rant mode, which is not my preferred reading style; and Schestowitz and I have some other core differences too.
