SuSE, openSUSE OpenSUSE 10.2 Beta 2 has been released. "I'm glad to announce the second beta of openSUSE 10.2 codename Basilisk Lizard. It contains a large number of enhancements and updates done by the open source community and Novell's development teams. For Beta 2 we updated to OpenSync 0.20 and would ask for some testing by the community. We have prepared some testcases for specific mobile devices, like mobile phones which synchronize with SyncML, IrMC and other protocols. The testcases also include simple connection tests for Palm Devices. We would really appreciate any help and hopefully many success reports."

Ask yourself a question.

I think everyone should ask themselves a question. Before I get to that, remember that OpenSuse is not SLES or Sled, so supporting OpenSuse is still inkeeping with supporting open software. Hoever, SLES and SLED are built upon all the hard work that goes into OpenSuse.

So, ask yourself this question; If the worst case senario were true, would you want to support the foundation for SLES or SLED. Also ask yourself if the agrement was above board, are you really willing to trash your favorite, working just as you want it open source distro, becuase it's now related to the big bad wolf who might huf and puff and blow your house down. If you answer those questions, it will be apparent if OpenSuse is still for you.

Personally, based on what I currently know, I like SLED and OpenSuse 10.2 a little to much to trash it just yet. The time may come for that, but as of now, the party continues.
