New Distro Forum - Suse Linux


Another distribution has joined LinuxQuestions.org. Please welcome Suse Linux. This forum has been in the works for a while now and I know it's been much anticipated. Thanks for your patience. Participating in the forum will be Casper, Ginny and Ross (as well as a couple others). I'd like to give a special thanks to Marissa from Novell for working with me on this and Sam Hiser for putting me in touch with the right people to make it finally happen (which also means thanks to Tom for putting me in touch with Sam). Welcome to LQ.

SuSE was with me from 4.x to 7 ;)



Cheers,

Thumbs up Congratulations

This really helps consolidate the community. Lots of good SuSE people around that need this kind of support.

Umm, Jeremy, could you give us some details of what you worked out with the SuSE / Novell people? I mean, they have or had their forum (fora?) going as well, how can the use of both be optimized by us forum users? Did you decide on a special focus for each site or are they just going on parallel tracks or are you even going to merge?

Whatever, I'm glad you could get a SuSE-forum realized here .

P.S.: What about sorting the fora(? ) alphabetically in the menu of this site? It's sort of, hmm unusual, to see a (presumably) historically grown list ... , but that is not necessarily furthering search .

Glad to see Novell/SuSE get involved.
SuSE is an excellent and stable distribution.
I use it daily.

Good work, Jeremy!!!
That's the sole reason I'm glad we finally got one as well..

Nah, its good to add a major distro like Suse. Even though I don't use it, everytime I've tried it out, I liked it better than some of the others out there.

Now somebody has just got to start a post in there
asking how to pronounce it. Maybe Drew can do a
short audio file like Linus did for Linux. I can hear
it now,

"Hi, my name's Drew and I pronounce SuSE as Susie!"

just the same as I do, cause I'm from the South!
or get Tink to do it with a German humpf!!!

and then we'll have to get some of them Brits, or some
guy from down under to say it...man, we could have a
lot of fun with this. Nothing like trying to pronounce
Slackware...

Many distro's that participate here also have a forum available on their site. There is still a huge value to the distro on many levels. As for the sorting, they are alpha on the forumhome page, but by the order they joined on the distro page.

Haha.. I actually pronounce it usually as "Soos-Eh" :P

Who knows if I'm right though, everyone is gonna call it how they want. The only thing that does bother me though is when people mispronounce Linux though
