Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

I'd probably also go for a link to the Nvidia/Ati drivers on the desktop or something similar.

However, perhaps it's because Mark is serious about developing Linux in Africa (this is Ubuntu after all). It's OK for most of you with your unbelievably fast cheep broadband - a 10 Meg download no problem. However, on a sub 33K modem paying 30 cents a minute on line that might drop out at any minute this is a big deal. In most of Africa this is the norm, even in South Africa if you are on a farm line.

I think it's important that folk get the chance to use Linux and that's what Ubuntu etc is doing
