Novell Releases SuSE Linux 10

Novell announced that SuSE Linux 10.0 will be available in October 2005 and will include more than 1,500 open-source applications and packages that can be installed for advanced Web hosting, application development and home networking.

The retail version of the distribution comes with installation support and manuals designed to help users get up and running quickly. The desktop in SuSE Linux 10.0 includes the newest version of the Firefox Web browser, the OpenOffice.org 2.0 office suite, messaging clients and graphics-editing applications. It also will have security tools like a spam blocker and an integrated firewall.

SuSE Linux 10.0 also will introduce two advanced technologies meant to entice the Linux enthusiast -- Xen, a virtualization application, and iFolder, a file-access application -- both of which are slated for future iterations of Novell's enterprise-Linux products.

Retail Store

One of the notable differences in the new version of SuSE Linux, in contrast to efforts from competitors, is Novell's commitment to its retail version, said SuSE Linux product manager Marin Sommer.

"Some others have stopped the release of their retail versions, but Novell will keep improving its retail version to give customers a wider choice," he said.

Having a boxed, retail version gives users more convenience if they want more of a plug-and-play experience, he noted. "There are advantages to such a version, like installation support, printed menus and other features," said Sommer.

Community Effort

In addition to announcing the availability of SuSE Linux 10.0, Novell also noted that it is seeing significant interest and support both from the development community and from end users with its OpenSuSE.org open-source project.

Launched in early August, the project has prompted a surge of installations of the SuSE Linux distributions, according to Novell. Currently, according to Novell, a copy is downloaded every 18 seconds.

Through the OpenSuSE project, Linux developers, designers, writers and users can use the existing SuSE Linux distribution and participate in the creation of future versions of the software.
