SuSE, openSUSE A new major release of Novell's community-supported distro openSUSE 11 is now available and can be downloaded from the mirrors. Linux Format has a hands-on look at the new installer, SLAB menu and Compiz Fusion, and weighs up whether the distro can fight competition from Ubuntu and Fedora. Is this the start of a new era for SUSE?

Mono can help people port over their .net apps they're writing on Windows. A lot of what's stopping some bussineses from crossing the OS-border is that they have software written in .NET.

The sad thing is that just as the Mono team come up with a fairly usable implementation of Winforms, Microsoft deprecates it and starts pushing WPF. I'm not saying that the two are linked, but seeing as they are always going to be playing catch-up with the latest and greatest from Redmond, it is going to find very limited use.
