OpenSUSE 10.3 opens for business

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Another day, another Linux distro point revision. Honours this time go to OpenSUSE, available now in version 10.3 for free download at www.opensuse.org.

You can also buy this open source operating system, which is based on Linux kernel 2.6.22, from some retailers and at shopnovell.com for $59.95 in real money. Or, rather, you can place your pre-order. Flash the cash, and you will at some undetermined but real soon time get a boxed version, a manual and 90 days installation support thrown in.

So what goodies come with openSUSE 10.3, you ask? A nicer look and feel, courtesy of the latest versions of the GNOME and KDE desktop interfaces, we reply. And let's not forget newer versions of Open Office and AppArmor security software, and MP3 support "out of the box".

And support for just about every virtualization software company that you can think of, and some that you can't.

Also, props to the new 1-Click Install option, which makes it easier for users to access all those lovely software packages hanging out at the openSUSE Build Service. 1-Click was built by a single openSUSE community member - there are 54,000 of them, which is quite a gang.

Convinced already? Move along then for some hot download action. Wanna feel some more spec under your fingernails? Dig your claws into the 10.3 announcement at the OpenSUSE news blog.
