“An OpenSUSE 11.3 Launch Party!”
with Chuck Payne, regional OpenSUSE Ambassador
Come and be one of the first to get copies of OpenSUSE 11.3,
the lastest release from the OpenSUSE Community, plus learn
more about the OpenSUSE Build Service 2.0 and the “Li-F-E”
(Linux For Education) distribution.
— The openSUSE Project is a community program sponsored by Novell,
AMD and IP Exchange. Its main goal is promoting the use of Linux
everywhere by developing the OpenSUSE Linux distribution and by
providing an environment for open source collaboration through tools
such as the OpenSUSE Build Service. Since it is an open project,
anyone can contribute to the OpenSUSE project by editing the wiki,
translating the distribution, creating software patches, developing
rpm packages, reporting bugs or suggesting features.
The goals of the OpenSUSE project include:
* Make OpenSUSE the easiest Linux distribution for anyone to
obtain and the most widely used open source platform.
* Provide an environment for open source collaboration that
makes OpenSUSE the world’s best Linux distribution for both new
and experienced Linux users.
* Dramatically simplify and open the development and packaging
processes to make OpenSUSE the platform of choice for Linux kernel
and application developers.
* Become the simplest Linux distribution while providing a
maximum number of packages.
— Chuck Payne is a Linux System Administrator who has been an
an active member of the OpenSUSE community since October,
2009, becoming an Ambassador for OpenSUSE in April, 2009.
He has given talks at Atlanta, Texas and Southeast Linux Fests
to spread the word about OpenSUSE to the masses while
handing out a few cute stuffed “Geekos”. He was working for
the Travel Channel Media as one of their Linux admin until
